The first two agaves in flower at the JC Raulston Arboretum.The first two agaves in flower at the JC Raulston Arboretum.

What's in bloom at the JC Raulston Arboretum?  This week look for Gardenia, Hypericum, and Hydrangeas throughout the Arboretum.  Yuccas are in full bloom in the Perennial Border.  In the Lath House as the Kalmias finish blooming, the Hostas take the stage.   In the Southwest Garden (closed due to construction) Agave havardiana hybrid and Agave neomexicana have 10-15' flower spikes.  This list is not comprehensive of all the plants currently flowering at the Arboretum.  Plant names in RED are new to the list this week.  Enjoy your visit!
