The Arboretum and Botanical Gardens has 140 acres of woodlands that have tens of thousands of the same woodland wildflowers you can see in the Missouri Ozarks. In mid April we should see Wild Columbine, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Wild Ginger, Toothwort, Blue-eyed Mary, Aunt Lucy, Delphinium, Dutchmen’s Breeches, Bloodroot, Bed Straw, Wild Geraniums, Wild Blue Phlox (perhaps two species), Virginia Waterleaf, Maple-leaf Waterleaf, Wild Impatiens, False Rue Anemone, Turks Cap Lilies, Solomon Seal, False Solomon Seal, May Apples, and others. We should also see thousands of flowers on the Pawpaw trees. Meet at the Visitors Center, then we will walk on mulched paths, up and down slopes and hills as we go to the lower bluff area at Wolf creek. Walking shoes recommended.
Registration through Friends of the Arboretum is recommended as space is limited.
