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

Overview

This is a celebration of the chrysanthemum and fall plantings at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Central to the exhibition in the extensive chrysanthemum display showcasing thousands of flowering plants in both interior and exterior locations-the largest of its kind in Michigan.

The center point of the exhibition is the Grace Jarecki Seasonal Display Greenhouse. Specialty chrysanthemums are featured in the Victorian Garden Parlor and the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory. Each week, Horticulture staff and local florists create arrangements featuring the chrysanthemum specifically for Meijer Gardens on display in the Gunberg Corridor.

Outdoors, noteworthy plantings are featured at the temporary entrance, Michigan's Farm Garden, Lena Meijer Children's Garden, Volunteer Tribute Garden and Medallion Garden.

Fall harvest provides vibrancy to the Michigan's Farm Garden through heirloom vegetables, herbs, gourds, and large pumpkins.

Mum Day, October 20 will provide our members and guests an opportunity to interact with horticulture staff and learn more about the fascinating chrysanthemum and fall themed plantings.

New and Noteworthy: Experience the formal garden displays with modern touches. The dedicated areas will feature unique displays focused on blocks of color with a distinct color palette. Colorful plantings like 'Cherry Spice' orange mums and rainbow chard are paired with 'Red Kuri' squash and lime green apples artfully arranged to create bold patterns.
