Though April might indeed bring showers, you won’t have to wait until May for flowers.
Next month, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens welcomes back Columbus Blooms, a colorful outdoor exhibit of flowers on the Conservatory’s grounds featuring more than 125,000 spring bulbs, according to a recent release.
Visitors will be able to see tulips, narcissus, crocus, and hyacinth from the Grand Mallway to the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden, as well as in interior courtyards and rooftop terraces within the Conservatory building.

“Spring is a time of rebirth and awakening” said President and CEO of Franklin Park Conservatory Bruce Harkey in a prepared statement. “This year’s Columbus Blooms has more meaning than ever. In 2020, we looked to spring flowers as a sign of hope for better days ahead. This year, these blooms represent the growth that blossoms after a long period of dormancy.”
Over 65,000 of the blooms were planted in areas where they could self-propagate, to create more blooms in coming years.
Columbus Blooms is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from April 1 through 30 with general admission to the Conservatory. For more information, visit fpconservatory.org.
