Bloom Report


Our gardens and grounds are awash in beautiful color. See the full report after the pictures.

Biltmore's Director of Horticulture, Parker Andes, has this to say about August blooms: "August is our peak for tropical displays—especially in containers—across the estate. Biltmore gardeners have designed and planted hundreds of containers from the front door of the Reception & Ticketing Sales Center to Antler Hill Village & Winery.

The earliest photographs of the front of Biltmore House show tropical palms planted in large terra cotta pots—we continue that tradition today using the best selections available, just as George Vanderbilt did.

The exuberant container displays on the patios outside the Conservatory and the ones placed throughout Antler Hill Village should please even the most discerning gardener. Also peaking with the warm weather of August: the water lilies in the Italian Gardens. Look for their iridescent pink and blue flowers held high above the water, most of them waiting until mid-day to open."
