The 376-acre paradise of Gibbs Gardens puts on the ‘magnificent’ in May
The deep blue water irises, which thrive in the many ponds of Japanese gardens, attract butterflies, dragonflies and birds. Collections of hand-carved Japanese lanterns and unique boulders provide an ingenious contrast to the bonsai-like Japanese maples and evergreens.
Acres of blooming Flanders poppies in vivid shades of salmon, orange and red complement the blue, lavender, purple and white larkspur and bright orange butterfly grass in the wildflower garden of the monarch butterfly. Thousands of travel-savvy monarchs are expected to visit this garden in May on their migration from Mexico for Canada.
A rainbow of annuals, perennials, azaleas, foxgloves and hydrangeas bloom in May in the Upper Gardens. Nearby, the most stunning 100-foot-long “passageway” trellis will be covered in New Dawn blush pink roses.
