At the Arboretum 3-20-24

Spring has officially arrived and with it the flowering trees we love so much. Several Prunus cv. Okame trees (Flowering Cherry) are in full bloom, one to the right as you come up the driveway from Hanover Avenue and another in the upper parking lot. The beautiful white flowers on the Loebner Magnolia are beginning to open on the tree to the left as you come up the driveway. Also in the upper parking lot a large Salix chaenomeloides (Giant Pussy Willow) is putting on quite a show, full of fuzzy, young catkins. There are also many other plants blooming, i.e., Daffodils, early Irises, Crocuses, etc.

Make plans to visit soon. Picture credits: Margery Ennist.
