What's in bloom at the Toronto Botanical Garden

>March 22 – 29

>In the Demonstration Garden this week you will find:
Galanthus Collection (Snowdrops). A variety of snowdrops are beginning to naturalize in this section of the garden. Look for them at the west end of the Entry Garden at the Lawrence Ave. entrance

In the Arrival Courtyard:
Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Primavera’ (Witch Hazel); x Intermedia hybrids are large deciduous shrubs preferring organically rich, acidic soils. Primavera is upright and vase-shaped, eventually reaching 15 feet and flowering later than most cultivars.

In the West View Terrace corner bed:
Crocus vernus ‘Jeanne d’Arc (Dutch crocus); this early riser has glistening white petals with purple striations from the top of the stem to the flower’s base

In the Garden Hall Courtyard:
Crocus flavus (Crocus luteus; Dutch yellow crocus); this bright orange-yellow crocus is known for its smaller, richly coloured flowers during early spring in March and April
