The Big Leaf Magnolia is Blooming!

After a three year hiatus, the Big Leaf Magnolia (above right) is blooming again! There are several of these trees in the garden but this is the only one mature enough to bloom. It lis located near the Spartanburg regional Foundation Children's Gazebo on the Bartram Trail. Hurry, the blooms don't last long! The Indian Pink (above left) are starting to bloom in the Altrusa Native Plant Garden. Hydrangeas are starting their blooming season which extends through the summer. For everyone's enjoyment, please don't pick the flowers!

WHAT: Iris (various varieties)

all around the garden

Irises are known for their sword like leaves and flowers that have three petals that stand up (called standards) and three petals that descend (called falls). Some like their feet dry, others like to be standing in or near water. Hatcher Garden has over five different irises that are currently blooming. There is a coloring page of irises available for download.

*If you are interested in photographing these flowers for nonprofessional use, please don't lay in the garden beds. You may crush emerging flowers. AND please don't pick the flowers! We want everyone to enjoy the flowers. Thank you!

Come join us in the Garden and see these beautiful plants in person!
