From early spring carpets of trilliums, trout lilies and bloodroot to late fall fields of goldenrods and asters, The Arboretum's various habitats provide a home for many species of wildflowers and other non-woody plants. These in turn attract many wildlife species to their pollen, nectar, seeds, leaves and roots.

This Goldenrod has attracted a Monarch with its nectar.

We teach a variety of wildflower identification, gardening and photography workshops at The Arboretum; click here to see details. We also sell Spring Woodland Wildflowers of The Arboretum booklets to help you identify the beautiful flowers you may find in our woods.
