Biltmore Gardens in Bloom: Spring Comes to Asheville


Spring blooming season is upon us in Asheville, NC! The gardens at Biltmore Estate are world-renowned for their spectacular show of colors, and April marks the beginning and the best of ornamental flowering splendor. The Biltmore Gardens were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the same celebrated landscape architect who is responsible for such well-known projects as Central Park in New York City and the country's oldest state park, Niagara Falls.


Spectacular Blooms at Biltmore Gardens
In early to mid- April, many varieties of trees transform into full bloom, including fruit tress such as cherry, pear, and apple, as well as the unique flowers of redbud, magnolia, and dogwood trees, whose delicate white bloom is recognized as the North Carolina state flower. Bulb blooming season is another stunning reason to visit the Biltmore Estate during April, with daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths offering guests a full array of color. Then come the azalea bushes, drawing hundreds of butterflies toward the end of April and throughout May! This is one of nature's most vibrant displays: a must see for gardening enthusiasts!
