What's in bloom?

There is always something blooming at Bellingrath Gardens! In winter, come see over 400 varieties of camellias, Alabama’s State Flower and what Walter Bellingrath referred to as the “aristocrat of Bellingrath Gardens”. In spring, our gorgeous azaleas are everywhere. Summer is all about roses, hydrangeas and beautiful tropicals. You absolutely don’t want to miss our spectacular Cascading Chrysanthemums gracing the Gardens every fall! At Bellingrath, all seasons are simply beautiful!

While reviewing this schedule to plan your visit, please remember that you may see these blooms only with Mother Nature’s kind cooperation! To find out what’s in bloom right now, click here.
