Geophytes are an important part of the steppe climate. Some of the most recognizable geophytes are bulbs. Bulbs offer not only spring beauty but interest throughout the season. Bulbs can also be an important source of food. #steppesuns This first spring in the Denver Botanic Gardens' Steppe Garden...Learn more

Remind me not to take pictures of happy spring flowers in February: Hellebores can be found tucked in many corners featuring dappled shade. These are thriving in the Rock Alpine Garden. Head to the Orangery, to catch our annual jump-the-season display of festive tulips, daffs, and primroses. (It’s...Learn more

Do you have the feeling winter is lasting FOREVER this year? Me too. Hellebores (Helleborus) in white, pink, and even deep red and black are some of winter’s best compensation! Find them in the Waring Garden, the Rock Alpine Garden, along Shady Lane, and elsewhere. Also in the always precocious...Learn more

Now Ellen! I don't decry your lovely shots of snow, but flowers are still blazing out there! Let's not rush into this winter thing quite yet (although I don't deny we've had two good blasts of snow the last few weeks). I counted dozens of plants with flowers lingering, and there are (in fact) a few...Learn more

The clock fast forwards a decade: Denver Botanic Gardens is no longer involved with the maintenance or planning here. But I believe Centennial has more than achieved its dream. There are incredible hedges of native shrubs that only need to be trimmed once a year since they are kept dry and do not...Learn more

Iris reticulata 'Clairette' I have a bank at home studded with a dozen or so of these blooming right now, and I see them poking up here and there all over the Gardens. You know the problem with America? How come there are medical marijuana outlets popping up every ten feet and still not enough...Learn more

The first crocus in my home garden has bloomed faithfully on February 22nd every year since it was planted, and, as far as I’m concerned, that signals spring as surely as the opening pitch of the season.Learn more

Saturday's warm weather drew out more bulbs and other early bloomers, and finally its beginning to look like March should. March belongs to several genera in the rock garden, Crocus, Galanthus and Helleborus are just a few genera that shine in March. I hope to do a blog on both Galanthus and...Learn more

Is it Spring Yet? Early bulbs and other Harbingers of spring starting in Rock Alpine Garden

While the official solar start of spring is still eight days away on March 20th, I think it is safe to say that spring has sprung in the Rock Alpine Garden. True, there may be many more snow storms and still plenty of mornings to scrape ice off of windshields, but the true harbingers of spring are...Learn more
