What’s in Bloom
Much of the garden is still blanketed in snow but spring has surely sprung. Look at these magnificent Magnolia buds. This cultivar is named ‘Butterflies’ and can be found on the driveway side of the Waterwise Deck.
The Scotch heather in the Alpine Garden (between the Haggerty Ed Center and Matilda’s Café) looks vibrant against the snow.
