Celebrating an Icon: Olmsted 200
Biltmore is honored to partner with the national Olmsted 200 campaign to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Frederick Law Olmsted’s birth. Known as America’s foremost landscape architect, his final project was the magnificent landscape design of George Vanderbilt’s estate, which stands as a living tribute to Olmsted’s genius.
With Mother Nature's cooperation, you may see the following blooms during the year.
Our horticultural experts continually work to preserve Olmsted’s original vision for the gardens and grounds, including our Rose Garden that features more than 250 varieties.
As a century-old model for forest conservation (and, more recently, for sustainability, thanks to nine acres of solar panels), Biltmore continues to honor George Vanderbilt’s legacy of environmental protection.
