Bok Tower Gardens’ Spring Peak Bloom Season is an experience like no other. Beautiful flowering plants including hundreds of azaleas and camellias line the gardens’ paths, along with nun’s orchids, irises and the real spring standout – gorgeous magnolias. It’s all grown in the historic landscape garden designed to be a contemplative woodland setting, offering a series of tranquil resting spots to take in Mother Nature and breathtaking views of the Singing Tower. As spring progresses, so does the ever-changing palette of colors, so we encourage you to make a few visits as the garden blooms showcase an ever-changing work of art.Besides its beautiful blooms, Bok Tower Gardens has many other offerings for its guests all throughout the month of March and beyond.
