Spring Bloom at Bok Tower Gardens
Jan 1, 2019
- Mar 31, 2019
Ring in the spring blooming season with a visit to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales. Their annual Bloom Festival is dedicated to highlighting the cultural and horticultural arts. Spring Bloom Festival celebrates Mother Nature with a full calendar of events and beautiful floral displays in each room of Pinewood Estate.
Long appreciated as the most glorious time in the Gardens, experience three months of blooms beginning with orange blossoms, followed by camellias and then the grand finale of azaleas. Adding to the horticultural excitement is a collection of blooming annuals, tea olive trees and a display of flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies in the Horseshoe Garden. The Michael Michaud Collection will debut at The Shop at Bok with jewelry inspired by our orange blossoms and magnolias.
