What's in Bloom?

last modified August 25, 2014

List of species in bloom at Garden in the Woods, Framingham, MA.

Volunteers for the Society walk the paths and trails of Garden in the Woods each week to find what is in bloom and create records which help the horticulture staff understand the early or late season we are experiencing. Trend data is pulled from these records.

 

We share this weekly information online to let visitors know what is in bloom as they plan their Garden trips.
