Bluebell Wood

More than 45,000 bluebells (Hyacinthoides hispanica 'Excelsior') are planted under a mature stand of oak, birch, and beech trees just south of Cherry Esplanade. In late April, the bluebells burst into flower and create an enchanting woodland display. As these spring ephemerals fade, summer-blooming hardy begonias emerge providing pink flowers in summer and lovely reddish foliage in fall.
