Each year Mother Nature sheds winter and puts on a colorful spring season opener with Dallas Blooms. The largest floral festival in the Southwest returns February 25–April 9 with more than 500,000 blooms throughout the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden’s 66 acres. This year’s festival, “Flower Power: Peace, Love and Blooms,” is a salute to the psychedelic ’60s and will feature flower arrangements inspired by the decade throughout the garden. During the six-week exhibit, the space plans to throw a variety of garden parties and concerts in addition to the main attraction—the spring blooming of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, pansies, violas and other annuals and perennials. The blooms are a result of 11,560 man hours spent planting bulbs in the winter. The grand finale is the garden’s collection of 3,000 azaleas that bloom en masse through April.
