See What's Blooming Now
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 July blooms: "July and mid-summer may be one of the best times to visit gardens in the mountains. With relatively cool nights and warm days, our tropical plants, summer blooming perennial and annual plants all fill out their space and then some.
As Rosebay rhododendrons finish blooming early in the month, summer blooming hydrangeas (Oakleaf, Smooth, and Lacecaps) fill in the shrub layer. In the Italian Garden pools, Lotus bloom will peak in July, accompanied by more water lily blooms every day. The annual display beds fill in, and this year old time zinnias welcome guests at the entry, a wonderful layered design can be seen in the Walled Garden, and an eclectic mix of tropical annual color and showy containers decorate Antler Hill Village and Winery. The Conservatory gardeners have created two separate container displays on the outdoor patios: one with a shady tropical feel, and another that features beautiful succulents from tiny to huge."
