Plantings in various parts of the Arboretum change with the seasons. There is always something new to see!

Seasonal Interest at the Henry Schmieder Arboretum

  • Spring - Masses of daffodils, tulips and pansies, woodland ephemerals and our exceptional collection of flowering trees
  • Summer - Colorful seasonal plantings, including annuals, perennials and even some tropicals, all of which complement the green of trees, shrubs and lawn.
  • Fall - Foliage color intensifies as green fades and reds, oranges and yellows glow on the numerous old trees and specimen plants. Many of our gardens sport shrubs and grasses and native perennials that become the stars of our autumn display.
  • Winter - The pastoral setting includes old barns and centuries-old buildings that are often best enjoyed after the leaves have dropped and the structures become more prominent
