Dawn Redwoods

The Frelinghuysen Arboretum is full of surprises. Recently a visitor, Steve Carr, walked around the Conifer Collection and took this picture of a beautiful group of Metasequoia glyptostroboides, the Dawn Redwood. They are located along the creek in the Conifer Collection.

What's in Bloom

Our very popular feature, the What's in Bloom list is filled with new material thanks to volunteer, Phil Dahlen's efforts earlier in the week. The Arboretum is nothing short of spectacular, as Mother Nature has donned her spring colors.

Come to the Frelinghuysen soon to enjoy it for yourself.

ARTboretum - Pumpkin Carving Art

Yesterday, artist Nelson Hancock installed an exhibit of charmingly evil cucurbits (that's pumpkins of all shapes and sizes) on the slate patio just outside the Haggerty Education Center that is both whimsical and fascinatingly scary. The pumpkins will be on display through Halloween, so try to get over to the Arboretum to see them.
