Celebrate Mother’s Day at BBG
Need somewhere special to take mom for Mother's Day this Sunday? Bring her on a tour of BBG to smell the lilacs and enjoy the bright blooms of tulips, wisteria, azaleas, crabapples, Japanese tree peonies, and more!
The Lilac Collection underwent a renovation this past winter and has just recently begun to bloom. There are approximately 150 specimens in the collection that flower in colors including white, violet, blue, lilac, pink, magenta, and purple as well as bi-color sensations. Each shrub has a different scent and it's an incredible experience to walk around on a sunny spring day exploring and enjoying the different fragrances.
Guided tours are offered at 1 p.m. on weekends and are free with Garden admission. Meet at the Visitor Center; no reservations are needed. To learn more about the collection, visit Lilac Collection.
