Recently voted #2 in USA Today's 10Best Public Gardens contest, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is known as one of the "best botanical gardens in the U.S." (Travel Channel) and one of the "Top 10 North American Gardens Worth Travelling For" (Canadian Garden Tourism Council and BBCTravel).

Spring is a great time to visit and to experience the gardens as art! During A Million Blooms, a dozen picture frames will be set up throughout the Central Garden and inside the Conservatory to feature what’s in bloom. Peer through the empty frames to view “living bouquets,” ensuring you see the Garden’s highlights. Then visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ Van Gogh, Manet, and Matisse: The Art of the Flower exhibit (March 21 – June 21) to see how many of the flowers inspired masterpieces.

 The Garden will also have 19th French-inspired floral arrangements in the Library during the following weekends: Easter Weekend with Peter Rabbit (April 4 & 5); Heritage Weekend (April 18 & 19) and Mother’s Day Weekend (May 8 – 10).

Other A Million Blooms highlights are the newly completed Cherry Tree Walk with cherry blossoms and other blooms around Sydnor Lake, and Butterflies LIVE! opening April 17. Check out the Children's Garden for fun and hands-on activities any time!
