June 2022 Bloom Report

For a sneak peek at how color is transforming our gardens and grounds, review our Bloom Report.
Bill Quade, Biltmore’s Senior Manager of Horticulture, tells you what’s blooming when (and where!) across our magnificent estate. Plus, see answers to some of our frequently asked garden questions!

Cool mountain mornings make walks through the gardens a truly delightful experience. The annual summer install is now complete and tropical plants that spent the winter months inside greenhouses are now outside for everyone to enjoy.

The tropical displays both inside the Conservatory and outside take hundreds of hours to create and allow our talented horticulturists to showcase very unique plants. June is a wonderful time to see a variety of hydrangeas in bloom throughout the gardens, in Antler Hill Village, and at The Inn. Although they offer smaller blossoms than hydrangea, abelia is an equally striking plant to see in bloom; it’s such a joy to watch bees dart in and out of the flowers collecting pollen.

With June’s warmer days, perennials will undoubtedly add plenty of color within the Walled Garden and smaller beds across the Shrub Garden. When you visit the Village, be sure to see Biltmore Gardens Railway – Wonders of the World. Our horticulturists have done a remarkable job creating landscapes that represent the many iconic landmark structure locations in this must-see display.

Summer at Biltmore

Ready for its closeup, this perfectly pink rose lifts its face to greet the summer sun.

Of the many varieties gracing our gardens, the lush and prolific lavender blooms of the bigleaf hydrangea are among the most striking.

The grey stone wall and this climbing hydrangea’s own green leaves provide a contrasting backdrop for its fresh white blooms.

Clematis, one of the most decorative and spectacular of all flowering vines, offers showy blooms all summer long.
