OVER 450,000 BLOOMING BULBS
One of the great botanical gardens in the West and a marvelous Daffodil display each spring is found at Red Butte Garden anytime during the month of April and early May. Every fall, volunteers and staff plant additional bulbs throughout the Garden and this spring the Garden will boast a colorful array of over 450,000 blooming bulbs, with over 230,000 Daffodils and 206,000 other bulbs including Allium, Anemone, Calochortus, Camassia, Chionodoxa, Cyclamen, Erythronium, Fritillaria, Galanthus, Hyacinth, Hyacinthoides, Ipheion, Iris, Leucojum, Muscari, Scilla, Triteleia, and more. Millions of tree blossoms such as the Garden’s glorious Crabapples, Magnolias and Flowering Pears, and Wisteria will also dazzle the senses.
The Garden's bulb display has two peak bloom periods. Thousands of miniature bulbs including Reticulated Iris, Siberian Squill, and Glory-of-the-Snow are not to be missed in the Rose Garden throughout March. The miniature bulbs are soon followed by Daffodils throughout the Garden. Over 150 different cultivars of Daffodil begin blooming in mid March and continue through early May. Further complimenting the bulbs are Hellebore, Magnolia, Flowering Pear, Crabapple, Hawthorn, Viburnum, Wisteria, Foxtail Lily, Lilac, and more!
The Garden also offers public and private garden tours, art exhibits, and a bulb display during the festival. Pack a picnic, bring your kids to play in the Children’s Garden, take a hike through the garden and natural area, or just relax in the sun.
