Bloom Report for March 28 - April 3
For a weekly sneak peek at how spring color is transforming our gardens and grounds, review our Bloom Report. Parker Andes, Biltmore’s Director of Horticulture, tells you what’s blooming when (and where!) across our magnificent estate.
“Spring has officially sprung. Daffodils and tulips and hyacinths, oh my! Redbud trees will be in full bloom by mid-week with flowering dogwood coming on quickly behind them. Crabapple trees, saucer magnolia, and the early cherries will have color this weekend and then fade as later blooming cherries and serviceberry trees step into the spotlight. As the week progresses, viburnums and fothergilla will takeover for forsythia.“
—Parker Andes, Director of Horticulture
