Featured Plants - March
A major Arboretum attraction in March and April is the Magnolia Orchard near the Visitors Center, which presents both a colorful landscape and a delightful bouquet. This research orchard of hybrid magnolias was established in 1966 to evaluate their susceptibility to late spring frosts. A variety of the blooming hybrids is shown below.
