Autumns Colors Season

Autumn’s Colors

October 2–November 14, 2021

Ever-Changing … Always Stunning

Crisp, fresh, and altogether refreshing, autumn at Longwood is a season of constant shifts in hue and texture … yet ever-present beauty. Marvel at our spectacularly painted vistas, stroll through our picturesque Meadow Garden rippling with life, and find family fun in our whimsical Garden Railway (opening October 2) and Pumpkin Playground (opening October 9).

Inside, celebrate fall’s quintessential flower with our Chrysanthemum Festival. Beginning October 16, innovative plant-growing techniques and displays take center stage by way of thousands of carefully nurtured and trained chrysanthemums throughout our Conservatory … where bold blooms to how-do-they-do-that forms abound.
