April Events at Laurelwood

daffodilsA major thrust at Laurelwood Arboretum has been to plant bulbs that will provide glorious and delightful flower displays that begin in early spring and continue into summer. In the fall of 2014 and 2015, many hardy volunteers planted thousands of spring-flowering bulbs in various areas of the arboretum. Here is what you will find during April:  

  • Daffodils (yellow and white) along Dorothy’s Way, along Brook Road to the 2nd Bridge, in the Spring Garden along Fairway, and on Ridge Road (near the lightening tree)
  • Winston Churchill (white) along Dorothy’s Trail and by the Pinto bench near the pond 
  • Pink daffodils behind the Knippenberg Center (retaining wall), along Dorothy’s Way (near Brook Road), and along the path between Home Hill and the Vale Road parking lot
  • Miniature daffodils along the 4th Bridge path, and Brook Road between Hickory Hill and the Back 40
  • Daffodils (N. bulbicodium – yellow) in the Sensory Garden
