BILTMORE ESTATE FLOWER UPDATE


If you visit Biltmore Estate this week, you will notice that landscapers are already pulling up the tulips from the front entrance and the walled garden. The tulips are now past peak and, to keep everything looking beautiful at Biltmore for the Festival of Flowers, the landscapers are replacing the tulips with thousands of gorgeous poppies, violets and snapdragons.

Be sure to check out Biltmore's Bloom Report for weekly information on what's in bloom at Biltmore. The website currently reports several blooming shrubs and trees in the Shrub Garden, Azalea Garden, Walled Garden and Spring Garden.

Love gardening or even just strolling among the beautiful blooms? Learn more about the gardens and their history by taking a Guided Garden Walk. Walks are available Saturdays and Sundays, April 5–June 1, at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The cost is $15.00 per person. Make reservations at the Welcome Center on the day of your arrival.

Don't forget, for your convenience, you can purchase discounted Biltmore tickets here at the Inn on Mill Creek. Those tickets are good anytime for two consecutive days.
