Every day this Spring, it seems, The Henry Botanic Garden comes alive anew with magnificent plants.

As Matthew Ross, the Director of Continuing Education at Longwood Gardens, puts it: “This is one of the most incredible collections of botanical curiosities. So many specimens at the Henry are from the plant collection of Mary Henry!!!”

Here is Henry Botanic Garden President Susan Treadway’s take on the bloom timing this year.

“The Camassias in the Rock Garden are spectacular. Never have I seen so many. As are the Halesia Diptera v. Magniflora. Plus the “Texas” halesia. Aesculus is blooming all over! And Magnolia fraseri have prospered in the Southern Garden.”
