The Dallas Arboretum celebrates 31 years of its Dallas Blooms festival

As the frigid temps of winter start to disappear and we say goodbye to our cold weather wardrobes, spring begins to peek through in the way of warmer days, sunny skies and pretty blooms. In DFW, there’s nowhere like the Dallas Arboretum when you desire a dreamy escape to fragrant gardens bursting with vibrant flowers. And this year, the arboretum is celebrating three decades of Dallas Blooms, the Southwest’s biggest floral festival that continues to draw countless local and out-of-town visitors. USA Today named Dallas Blooms one of the top 10 things that make you say “ahh,” effectively declaring the event as one of the must-see exhibits of the season.

Through April 6, take in the explosion of beauty featuring more than 500,000 bulbs that bloom during springtime, including tulips, daffodils, Dutch Iris and hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies and many more. The famous peacock topiaries, located in the Jonsson Color Garden, will also once again showcase their bright petal tails. Dallas Blooms’ finale unveils the arboretum’s collection of 3,000 azaleas, in bloom until the end of April.

The festival’s 2015 theme, Deep in the Hearts of Texans, is again brought to life in many Dallas Blooms Exhibits. Themed topiaries, entertainment, food and other activities will celebrate the iconography of our state that is recognizable world-wide..

So whether you’re searching for a fun way spend a Saturday afternoon or you want to take an entire day to appreciate all that Dallas Blooms has to offer, you’re sure to find blooming beauty around every colorful corner.
