Spring Flower Show

February is a tough month in Minnesota! What better time, then, for the botanical pick-me-up that is the Spring Flower Show at the Arboretum! 

The theme for this year’s show is Gardening With Nature, featuring a special emphasis on gardens that benefit birds, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects — as well as backyards that utilize found materials, including stumperies and other natural vessels, interspersed with a bounty of blooms.

Arb visitors will get a jump on the 2023 gardening season with a wealth of inspiring ideas at the show, which will feature vignettes throughout the Oswald Visitor Center and the Snyder Building. The balmy Meyer-Deats Conservatory will be the finale, decked out with succulents, orchids and more.

The Spring Flower Show is included with general daily admission for those who attend during the day (9 a.m.-4 p.m.). Flower show evening events are special ticketed events that are not included with general admission and are not eligible for EZ pass use.
