Archives For mums

Boyce Tankersley, Director of Plant Collections, takes us on a tour of the Garden to see some fall highlights. We saw the cascading mum hayracks over the Visitor Center Bridge, vibrant color combinations in the Circle Garden, developing colors on the roses in the English Walled Garden and fall color developing on trees throughout the Garden. Visit http://www.chicagobotanic.org/inbloom before your visit for a list of what’s currently in bloom. Also don’t forget to visit the What’s in Bloom Cart outside the Visitor Center for more highlights.

Tim Pollak shows us some of the plants he and his team grew in Production for the fall displays. The hanging mum hayracks have already been hung on the bridge from the Visitor Center. The mum ball containers will soon be moved to the Esplanade and the Crescent will soon be planted with the annuals Tim shows you in this video.
