Summer is still in full swing here at the Garden and the flowers know it, displaying their brightest colors!

Bee Balm   Monarda Didyma  

In the Herb Garden, this brilliant beauty is living up to its name with bees devouring its nectar and pollen.

European Cranberrybush Viburnum   Viburnum opulus  

These bright berries are sure to brighten your day as you enter the top of the Herb Garden.

Goldflame Honeysuckle    Lonicera x heckrottii  'Goldflame'

Make sure to check out the Orangerie where you will find these fragrant multi-colored flowers.

Water Hyacinth   Eichhornia crassipes 

Be sure to look for this magnificent Amazon Basin aquatic, floating in the Fragrance Garden fountain.

Alamos    Amaranthus  'Alamos'

While in the Herb Garden you won't be able to miss these tall striking flowers, they stand about 6 feet tall right now!
