Visit Pennsylvania's Botanical Gardens this Spring

There isn’t a more beautiful time to explore Pennsylvania this spring as the state’s landscape transforms into a colorful tapestry of wildflowers, tulips, wisteria, and fragrant flowering trees. Although that landscape is large beyond measure, you can find Pennsylvania’s breathtaking botanical gardens and arboretums in every corner. Find out more about these world-class gardens and all of their spring exhibits and happenings, as well as what’s in bloom, by clicking here.

Longwood Gardens celebrates spring with it’s Spring Blooms Season on display from March 30th to May 5th. In April, visit Longwood for the popular Open Air Theatre Fountain Shows. The historic performances, in the setting of the Italianate-style garden, feature over 750 jets that are set off in sync to live music. 

Phipps Conservatory has a new show that celebrates spring with bright bursts of color. Experience tens of thousands of blooms as you walk along the winding rainbow road in the Serpentine Room. Visit the Victoria Room for an interactive fountain and prism sculptures or get a new perspective and look through the eyes of bees and butterflies as supersized sculptures show how flowers look to our planet’s small pollinators. Gardens of the Rainbow will be on display from March 23rd to April 21st. Afterwards, grab a bite to eat at the award-winning green restaurant Cafe Phipps. Don’t forget to stop by the Shop at Phipps to browse unique glass flowers, hand-crafted home decor, eco-friendly toys, custom jewelry, and much more.

Morris Arboretum is located on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. Recognized as the official arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, this National Historic Place is dedicated to a worldwide effort of nurturing earth’s forests, fields, and natural landscapes.
