Bloom Report

"The Azalea Garden takes its turn as the star for the next few weeks—a living tribute to the hard work of Chauncey Beadle, who began working as the nurseryman at Biltmore in the first days of the estate construction and remained 60 years. In 1940, Edith Vanderbilt Gerry accepted Beadle’s collection of native and hybrid azaleas and renamed the area the ‘Azalea Garden’. A short stroll in this garden located below the Conservatory will help shake off any remaining winter blues. 

Gardeners are replacing tulips in the display beds with pansies, foxglove and dianthusFlowering dogwoods are taking over the show along the Approach Road and other estate drives with a few silverbell trees still in bloom."
