Our summer season shines with our stunning Waterlily Display, refreshing fountains, and towering trees.

On June 13 we debut our new Meadow Garden and invite you to explore its 86 acres of beauty telling the story of human interaction with the natural world.

Later in June, our Open Air Theatre turns 100 years old, and we’re marking this milestone with Summer Soirée evenings. Lastly, don’t miss our Fireworks & Fountains Shows—this year we’re presenting six of our favorites.

The outdoor waterlily display comes alive with more than 100 types of day and night-blooming tropical waterlilies, hardy day-bloomers, lotus, and other aquatic plants. Delights abound in the Rose and Topiary Gardens—with scented blooms and the precision geometry of clipped yew. The Flower Garden Walk overflows with annuals during the summer, and the deep calm of forest paths offer a cool respite.
