Our Fitzpatrick Conservatory is a welcoming harbinger of spring from March 1 to 19 for the Garden’s annual exhibition of New England springtime flowering bulbs. Visitors will see an evolving collection of traditional New England favorites such as narcissus, tulips and grape hyacinths will be some beautiful hardy varieties new to the show: a striking, dark purple tulip with fringed petals named ‘Vincent Van Gogh’; a diminutive, pink-orange tulip called ‘Salmon Gem’; a trio of new daffodils; and two exquisite dwarf irises, ‘Harmony’ and ‘Pauline,’ with flowers of brilliant blue and deep purple, respectively. But the star of the show might just be the enchanting Fritillaria meleagris or Guinea Hen Flower in a mix of colors. Its nodding, bell-shaped flowers vary from reddish purple checkered to black, to faintly checkered green, to pure white.
The Bulb Show is the Garden’s annual springtime gift to the community. Come see this unique pairing of flowering bulbs and get a unique glimpse of early spring.
