Celebrate Spring in the Arboretum!

Now is the time of year to enjoy a variety of flowering trees in the F. R. Newman Arboretum. The flowering cherries bloomed in late April, the magnolias are on their way to full bloom in early May, and the crabapples will bloom soon after. Later in May, the blooms of redbuds and dogwoods will emerge. Enjoy this sampler of flowering trees you'll find in the F. R. Newman Arboretum—click to learn more about each tree and where it is located.
