Chrysanthemums and More!

Chrysanthemums and More!

September 18 November 1, 2015

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.


Explore autumn through a parade of color and culture with this annual horticulture exhibition. The artful array of mums on display embodies the Japanese aesthetic as we honor the opening of The Richard & Helen DeVos Japanese Garden. Throughout Japan the mum is a culturally significant symbol of happiness and longevity.

Yellow chrysanthemums are prominently featured as we pay homage to the traditions of Japan. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we've added colossal baskets filled with splendid fall plants throughout the gardens and grounds. The phenomenal mum column in the Seasonal Display Greenhouse features a floor-to-ceiling display of mums paired with blue asters, ornamental kale and grasses.

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