AT A GLANCE

Daylilies in the Jenkins Daylily Garden are past peak bloom, but many are still showy.
Roses in both the Gladney and Lehmann Rose Gardens are in full, seasonal bloom.
Tardiva hydrangeas (Hydrangea paniculata 'Tardiva') and Surprise lilies (Lycoris squamigera) are beginning to bloom in many
locations on the grounds.
Annual bedding plants throughout the Garden are very showy. Particularly noteworthy are the beds in the Kresko Victorian,
Milles Sculpture, and Swift Family Gardens.
Coneflowers (Rudbeckia spp.) and Rattlesnake master (Eryngium yuccifolium) are showy in the Lucy and Stanley Lopata Prairie
Figs are ripening high above the walled Moorish Garden in the Shoenberg Temperate House. The showy and fragrant Florida
swamp lily (Crinum americanum) is blooming beneath the lilac Butterfly bush (Buddleja lindleyana). Fragrant Jasmines are also in
bloom, including Jasminum tortuosum and Jasminum officinale, which blanket the walls of the tiled Moorish Garden.
Impatiens are lush and colorful in the Linnean House. Flowering tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris 'Only the Lonely'), Flowering
maple (Abutilon 'Moonchimes') and Impatiens decorate the fountain.
Cardinal flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) along the stream in the English Woodland Garden are showy.
