Chrysanthemums and More!

Chrysanthemums and More!

September 19 October 26, 2014

An annual celebration of autumn, Chrysanthemums and More! is the largest of its kind in Michigan, featuring expansive chrysanthemum displays, fall foliage and family-friendly activities.

Overview

Indoors, the Seasonal Display Greenhouse features a cascading chrysanthemum-covered wall as the main focal point. Presentations of chrysanthemum spheres, large disbuds and beds of colorful planting complement this display in the nearby Victorian Greenhouse.

Outdoors, expansive beds of lush chrysanthemums are arranged in large sweeps of scarlet, purple, orange and gold. Ornamental cabbage and kale add texture and color.

Mum Day, Giant Pumpkins and Hallowee-Ones and other fall-themed activities full of family fun are available during this exhibition.
