Autumn at Longwood

Autumn is here ... and with it a first for Longwood, with our masterful Blooms & Bamboo: Chrysanthemum and Ikebana Sogetsu Artistry exhibit of towering bamboo art forms and enchanting arrangements.

Autumn also brings a painted landscape of ever-changing color and delightfully creative chrysanthemums meticulously grown into gorgeous forms throughout our Conservatory. Our Thousand Bloom Chrysanthemum—a single plant bearing more than 1,000 perfect blooms on a single stem—makes its dazzling debut October 24.

Autumn at Longwood ... a work of art.
