Chrysanthemums and More!

September 16 October 30, 2016

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.


A New Shade of Autumn 

Autumn is a time of dramatic transformation across our gardens—this year, more than ever. In this season of expectation, we invite you to expect the unexpected as you experience Chrysanthemums and More! 
From horticulture to harvest, this year’s exhibition ushers in the change of season with a palette of purples sure to intrigue your senses and even inspire a fresh perspective on fall. Abundance and artistry abound in  our seemingly endless sweeps of colorful chrysanthemums, dynamic vertical displays and thousands of voluminous blooms in varieties and shades ranging from the everyday to the exotic. 

The largest exhibition of its kind in Michigan, Chrysanthemums and More!  is exclusive to Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and one of our most beloved member and guest experiences. Savor it through October 30.

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