Blossoms, awe, and iron at Atlanta Blooms
The Atlanta Blooms exhibit at the botanical gardens is bursting with stunning flowers and unique artwork.
Looking for a fun date idea? Join the team at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for the second annual Atlanta Blooms: 300,000 Watts of Flower Power exhibition. The experience is carefully crafted each year to present the most electrifying and eye-catching array of colors and textures that you’ll see at any garden in town!
Spring in the gardens reflect the new life and excitement of the season. Vibrant pink tulips, royal purple and deep blue daffodils welcome guests into the park at the Camellia Garden, followed by the rich sunset tones of the Hardin Visitors Center and Lexy Parterre. Relax your senses with gentler hues of lavender, pink, and yellow as you make your way to the Great Lawn. But that won’t last long. Guests are quickly met with the warm red and sunshine yellow glow of ‘Jane Rues,’ ‘Red Impressions,’ and ‘Mrs. John Scheepers’ on every side.
The colors at the exhibit are arranged to complement (and at times, beautifully contrast) one another, awakening the senses and allowing every guests to appreciate the beauty of the gardens, with or without a background in gardening.
In addition to the flower exhibits, this year’s Atlanta Blooms will feature a collection of ironworks by Atlanta artist Andrew Crawford. These iron gates and flowers of various sizes provide a beautiful contrast in color and texture to the traditional exhibit. Don’t miss out on these stunning works created by an age-old art form.
Spend a full day roaming through the gardens with your partner. The botanical gardens make a great date location, with cozy nooks and benches for chatting and spending time together. Grab a bite to eat or a cool drink at MetroFresh, the garden’s café, before exploring the rest of the park.
