Using a GPS to Find the Arboretum

GPS's are far from infallible and their use to get to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum is no exception where our mailing address is in Morristown while our physical address is in Morris Township. Be sure to use the latter for entry into your GPS when traveling to see the gardens. The two addresses are on the bottom of this page, and the physical address is repeated on the Directions page.


We look forward to seeing you at the Arboretum, so matter what means your use to get here.

The recent rains may dampen our spirits, but the Arboretum's plants seem to love it. Our What's in Bloom list was updated yesterday with literally hundreds of plants in full display. Bring a friend, bring your family, but be sure to enjoy nature's splendor at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum.

Everything's in Bloom

IMG_8550.jpgWell, almost. I got to walk around the Arboretum last weekend where I visited the Hosta Show (some terrific examples of these fine plants) and also enjoyed the splendid garden displays. There were astilbe, baby's breath, clematis, butterfly bush and seemingly hundreds more in riotous display.

Fairy DayEarlier this summer, parents and children built houses for use by the Fairies on their annual summer visit to the Arboretum. Happily, we got pictures of this fun activity.
