SFA Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden Bloom Report for May 9, 2014

We enjoyed sharing our gardens with you this spring and hope you will visit throughout the year. While we still have some groups of late-blooming colorful azaleas still blooming, it is time to enjoy other wonderful aspects of the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden and the rest of the SFA Gardens.

The summer is our time for Hydrangeas—mopheads and Oak leaf varieties—and the cool shade of our ornamental trees. Summertime is when our large collection of maples, primarily Japanese maples, change color from their new spring growth to summer colors, and not all of these are “just green”.

Our next big bloom period will come in October when the Camellia sasanquas begin to bloom again. Then, in early November come see our maple show of many yellows, golds, scarlets, and purples.

Visit the 10 sculptures from the 2014 SFA Sculpture for All Competition, a project of SFA’s Art Department and SFA Gardens, which will be in place until January 2015. Five are in the 10-acre SFA Mast Arboretum, across the bridge over LaNana Creek. The Arboretum is filled with many other special collections and colorful annuals and perennials.
