We learned some interesting things about hummingbirds in this interview with Ecologist Jim Steffen. You’ll find hummingbirds in many of our 24 display gardens and in our three native habitats. You’ll also find many other resident and migratory birds at the Garden because of the diversity of plant life. Visit chicagobotanic.org/birds for more information on birding at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Heather Sherwood, Senior Horticulturist, tells us about the Lycoris squamigera, a hardy member of the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae), native to China. These bulbs as well as many spring flowering bulbs will be available at the Fall Bulb Festival October 1-3. For more information, visit chicagobotanic.org/bulb.
