The gardens around the Nevin Welcome Center in June are a feast for the eyes. Peonies, false indigo, Texas blue-star, rhododendrons, masterworts, cranesbills, Siberian irises, and our famous big-leaf magnolia are just a few highlights. In the F. R. Newman Arboretum ponds, the irises and water lilies are in full bloom, as are the nearby fringe trees, viburnums, and spireas. Many pocket gardens throughout the arboretum are bursting with early summer blooms.
