The Annual Tulip Extravaganza Is in Full Bloom

There’s nothing better than seeing the first signs of life emerge from the earth after a long, cold winter. From now until April 14, you can see a whole lot of life at the Garvan Woodland Gardens’ Daffodil Days & Tulip Extravaganza! Located just 15 minutes from Edgewater Resort, our local botanical garden showcases a vibrant display of more than 150,000 Dutch Tulips during this annual spring event.

The tulips might be the main attraction, but they’re not the only spring flowers you can find at Garvan Woodland Gardens this time of year.

The gardens are also home to daffodils, hyacinths, azaleas and a variety of spring annuals. In fact, it’s the largest spring floral display between Dallas and Memphis! Early spring rains have made the display particularly colorful this year; for daily updates on what’s blooming in the gardens, you can visit their Facebook page here.

On April 5, resident horticulturist Bryan Carlan will also be hosting a Bonsai workshop where gardeners can learn how to practice this ancient Japanese tree cultivation technique. This is a great opportunity to not only tour the gardens’ spring flower display, but also enjoy a fun and informative educational experience.

There’s no better time of year to visit the botanical gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop in and let us know what you think!

Don’t forget: with spring in full swing, now is the time to start making your summer vacation plans. Be sure to reserve your dates before they’re gone! To learn more about everything going on at Edgewater Resort, give us a call today to speak with a representative.
