Pumpkin Displays

Pumpkins Grown at HRC

Starting in mid-September, pumpkins will pop up in Arboretum gardens and around the Scarecrows in the Garden display.

Starting Oct. 1, check out the pumpkin tree, featuring hundreds of pumpkins, gourds and squash grown at the Arboretum’s Horticultural Research Center. This year’s tree will feature Cucurbita in a spectrum of color, arranged to create a rainbow. After you’ve marveled at the huge variety of colors, shapes, sizes and textures, visit the Arboretum's AppleHouse (about 1 mile west of the Arboretum’s main entrance) to buy Arboretum-grown pumpkins, squash and gourds for your seasonal displays or autumn meals.
