Discover the over 40 outdoor gardens at Denver Botanic Gardens either in person or from the comfort of home. Every day brings new blooms, fruit and vistas on the 20+ acres.
The listed plants are ones selected for their flowers, fruit or leaf colors, or texture in spring. As we move beyond blooming bulbs, we now can see (and often smell) flowering trees and shrubs. Lilacs, peonies, iris, viburnum and woody plants in the rose family are the signature plants of May. On a breezy day, you may be encircled in a whirlwind of flower petals, guiding you through your visit.
