Stop and Smell the Spring Flowers

Spring is in the air and Wisconsin’s public gardens will soon be bursting with color! Enjoy the sights and scents of the season while strolling alongside flower covered beds and past tranquil expanses.

If you're in Northen Wisconsin, stop by the Green Bay Botanical Gardens. Planted upon a former orchard, these gardens are especially beautiful in spring when tulips and other flowering bulbs bloom beneath the apple blossoms.

If you’re in Southern Wisconsin, the Boerner Botanical Gardens in Hales Corners are a must. Known as Milwaukee County’s Living Museum, the gardens are patterned after a typical English country garden. And don’t forget the nearby Rotary Gardens in Janesville. With 20-acres of space, the gardens pay special tribute to international peace and friendship with themed gardens from Japan, France, Italy and more.

There are even more suggestions on where to view the blooming beauties in Wisconsin where those came from. Of course, timing is everything so be sure to check the handy-dandy bloom schedules from the Boerner Botanical Gardens or the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison before you head out.

Oh and once you go, we’d love to see photos of your favorites in full bloom. Share them on the Travel Wisconsin Facebook wall.
