A good place to start your self-guided tour at the Arboretum is under the Greenroof Shelter in front of the Ag Center.  Here you can pick up a Visitor's Guide and see our 'What's In Bloom' display.  This is a sampling of plants we are highlighting this week.  Of course, there is much more for you to discover on your own.

(l. to r.): Sedum, Vaccinium ashei (Rabbiteye Blueberry), Monarda sp (Bee Balm), Solenostemon scuttelarioides 'Colesauraus', Picea pungens (Colorado Blue Spruce)

(l. to r.):  Rudbeckia hirta (Black-eyed Susan),  Salvia uliginosa (Bog Sage), Echinacea purpurea 'Leuchtstein' Bright Star (Coneflower), Hemerocallis 'Bloodspot' (Daylily), Tinantia pringlei (Speckled Wandering Jew)
