York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on July 27 & 29 for concerts. Other early closings.
Meconopsis 'Lingholm' is currently in bloom in the garden on the north side of the Education Building (adjacent to the temporary visitor parking lot). This is the first time this jewel has bloomed in this garden after being planted in 2005. The first sky-blue flower just opened today and there are several more buds too on this rather hairy plant. This variety, like other Himalayan blue poppies, thrives best in cool, partly shady conditions that are not too dry.
