Spring Blooms at the Garden @ Green Bay Botanical Garden

Apr 30 – May 25 all-day

Spring FountainSpring will knock your socks off with over 300,000 blooms!

This spring, the newly installed Schneider Family Grand Garden and revitalized Magnolia Grove feature 33,000 grape hyacinth and miniature white daffodils with the Matthew Schmidt Garden
showcasing 5,000 bulbs of the cherry red, purple and mauve Wellspring™ tulip blend.

The parking lot introduces the sunny yellow, white, orange and soft pink tulip blends Chardonnay™ and Prosecco™ planted with the Top 40™ daffodil blend.

The spritely purple, pink and white Trident™ tulip blend will pop around the Kaftan Lusthaus and a combination of red and pink tulips – Kingsblood, Queen of the Night, Aveyron, Rosy Diamond
and Angelique – will smolder around the Stumpf Belvedere.

These new additions bring the yearly spring floral display to over 300,000 blooms! With all the perennials, magnolias, crabapples and other blossoms, this display is off the charts!

Mother Nature permitting, the opening act starts toward the end of April, with the main event going onstage in May. Peak bloom is anticipated mid-May through the end of May.

Do not miss this show-stopping act!
