Our Garden Railway returns in October, sparking the imaginations of our littlest garden explorers as it travels through a scenic landscape.
Escape to our Conservatory for the Chrysanthemum Festival, beginning in late October. Our horticultural expertise shines as we unveil this year's Thousand Bloom Mum, the largest in North America. The performing arts shine as well, as we welcome a lineup of concerts sure to be as inspiring as the beauty that surrounds you.
Chrysanthemum Festival is unlike any other horticultural and artistic feat ever seen- featuring over 20,000 blooming chrysanthemums grown in extraordinary ways, preserving an ancient art form while innovating technique and display.
Wander through our Conservatory to see how our horticulture experts trained these colorful fall favorites into unique designs, including tall cloud forms, 13-foot arches, ball standards, shields, and more.

Please note that actual bloom times may vary depending on weather. The list of flowering highlights is subject to change.
