Spring FountainSpring’s splendor will take your breath away with more than 300,000 blooms!

This spring, we’re bringing these stunning views to you! Stay tuned to Facebook, Instagram and our website for the latest scenes of spring.

Outside the Fischer Visitor Center, the festive red, white and yellow Twister™ tulip blend and Spring Loaded® daffodil blend will be planted in alternating arcs. The Akebono tulips, a newer tulip that originates from Japan, will flourish in front of the Visitor Center. The Japanese word, akebono, roughly translates to bright sky at daybreak.

This year, we’ve switched up some of the suppliers we worked with to highlight some new tulip blends throughout the Garden. In front of the Schierl Wellhouse there will be red, white and pink Southpaw, Ace and Orthodox Stance tulip blends. A tulip blend called Slam Dunk will grace the area near the Kaftan Lusthaus. This blend will nicely coordinate with the butter color of the Lusthaus, a design tip we suggest you use in your own living space. Our new supplier also noticed that Wisconsinites love sports–big surprise!–so many of their tulip blends have sports related names. To top it all off they created a tulip called Green ‘N Gold! We planted this one in the entrance to the Van Den Wymelenberg Color and Foliage Garden.

Also, don’t forget that our magnolias, which are nationally recognized as part of the Magnolia Multisite Collection™, bloom around the same time as our spring display.

Mother Nature permitting, flowers bloom throughout May. Peak bloom is anticipated mid-May through the end of the month.
