Lagerstroemia 'Natchez'July 12, 2002

What's in bloom at the JC Raulston Arboretum?

The Annuals Trial Area is spectacular this week, nearly at its peak of flowering. Look for the flowers of Buddleja, Clethra, Hibiscus, and Lagerstroemia throughout the Arboretum this week. In the Lath House Hosta and several Hydrangea macrophylla cultivars are outstanding. The recent rains we have received has helped to promote a second bloom period on many woody plants, particularly on Loropetalum. This list is not comprehensive of all plants currently flowering at the Arboretum. Plant names followed by "Premiering This Week" are new additions to the "Now Showing" list this week.
