About the Season
On View April 4 Through May 31
When the first yellow buds of witch hazel appear, we know life is returning to the Gardens. With flowering trees, daffodils, and more than 240,000 tulips bursting into bloom, Spring Blooms creates a symphony of color like no other season.
Wander through our acres of spring... and come to life.
In April, the Idea Garden and Flower Garden Walk burst into bloom with spring bulbs and tulips in a rainbow of color, and spring annuals such as pot marigolds and snapdragons in May. In May, Peirce's Woods abounds with native azaleas, columbines, Virginia bluebells, and foam-flowers.
Discover what's blooming throughout the Gardens during Spring Blooms.
Plan Your Visit Early!
After this winter we are all ready for the first signs of spring! We’ve added more Member Appreciation Days for Members to enjoy our Gardens on weekdays to avoid the busy weekends and holidays. Buy timed admission tickets early as tickets are limited.
Longwood offers free parking for our guests.
During peak visitation times, free off-site parking may be used if our on-site lot is full. Transportation is provided between the off-site parking and the Visitor Center entrance. Please follow the signage and note the Longwood staff members directing traffic on peak visitation days.
