What's in Bloom

Thanks to volunteer Phil Dahlen, our What's in Bloom page contains a complete list of blooming activity at the Arboretum. Updated regularly, this handy list can give you a preview of things to see at the ever-beautiful Frelinghuysen Arboretum.

Two Weeks Till the Plant Sale

Believe it or not, it's only about two weeks until the Friends 16th Annual Plant Sale. The Members' Only Party and Sale is Friday, May 6th and the Main Event is Saturday, May 7th.

We have lots of information about the plants on our Plant Sale page, including a number of articles and pictures by our Plant Sale Co-Chairs. The whole list of plants is available in our On-line Plant List, where you can sort and list all the can't-live-withouts to your heart's content.

We hope we see you there!
