Submitted May 9, 2018 at 12:00 PM

We all know mothers love flowers. Bring your mom to the Garden this Mother's Day and she will not be dissappointed!

Columbine     Aquilegia 'Dragonfly'

These are poking up between the Robb's Spurge (Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae) near the Courtyard. The contrast is stiking!

Sunset Bitterroot
Sunset Bitterroot     Lewisia cotyledon 'Sunset Strain'

Check out these bright stunners in the Water Conservation Garden!

White Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart
White Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart     Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba'

After these bloom, the plant goes dormant for the summer. That means you better hurry up here to see them!

Japanese Cobra Lily
Japanese Cobra Lily     Arisaema sikokianum

At first glance, you may not know these are flowers. It is fun to see people's reaction to them! See them at the entrance to the Herb Garden.

Silver Shamrock
Silver Shamrock     Oxalis adenophylla

These are native to the Chilean-Argentinean Andes. They are planted all throughout the Water Conservation Garden.

Miniature Speedwell
Miniature Speedwell    Veronica oltensis

A very bright groundcover! It can be seen in the Water Conservation Garden.

Common Foxglove
Common Foxglove    Digitalis purpurea

This plant is quite literally a heartstopper. It has been used as a medicine since early times for heart conditions. Most medicinal plants are poisonous, and this one is no exception.

Bachelor's Button
Bachelor's Button    Centaurea montana

What fun and crazy flowers! Take a stroll into the Fern Gully to view them.

Lilac Wonder Tulip
Lilac Wonder Tulip     Tulipa saxatilis ssp. bakeri

Last but not least, this is the sight you see at the very top of the Water Conservation Garden. Worth it!

Whether you are a mom or you have a mom, come spend some quality time with family and friends at the Garden.

Don't forget about our Plant Sale this Friday and Saturday! Plants make great Mother's Day gifts!
