The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will be bursting with color this spring during one of Western New York’s favorite spring traditions, the Spring Flower Exhibit. From March 26 through April 24 the Botanical Gardens will be filled with colorful spring bulb, fragrant shrubs and flowers of various kinds. To help celebrate the spirit of spring, the Botanical Gardens will also be hosting their first ever Earth Day Celebration on April 23 as well as the famous Fairy Festival on May 15.
During the Spring Flower Exhibit, visitors will experience the sights and fragrant smells of hyacinths, vibrant daffodils and tulips in a variety of pinks, reds, yellows, and whites that will bring the Botanical Gardens some lively pops of color that visitors won’t want to miss. A diverse mix of annuals that were also grown on site at the Botanical Gardens will be featured in this year’s exhibit. This addition is going to give the exhibit an explosion of color for a fun, confetti-like feeling. Stroll through the Botanical Gardens and take in the fresh scents of spring and be transported into a tropical paradise while finding peace and serenity. The Spring Exhibit will be open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm beginning on March 26 through April 24 and joining in on the spring fun, the Botanical Bunny will be at the Botanical Gardens on Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16 from 10am-3pm to greet visitors and pose for photos surrounded by the beautiful spring colors.
