Bloom Report

"Due to a very warm May, our June gardens are coming on strong. Our gardeners have planted out hundreds of tropical plants and thousands of annuals across the estate that will fill in later this month. The Biltmore Gardens Railway display in the Conservatory leads guests through tropical foliage and flowers, with model railcars appearing, disappearing, and reappearing as they travel from one space to the next. Trains pass beside intricate botanical models of buildings and structures on the estate, which deserve to be studied closely. Guests will see slate roofs crafted from eucalyptus leaves, gargoyles shaped from seed pods and leaves, and All Souls Church, the roof of which is made of slices of bamboo gathered here on the estate.

In the gardens, Chinese dogwoods and smoketrees will bloom through the early part of June, with magnolias and crepe myrtles providing color later on in the month. Rhododendrons, elderberry, and our summer hydrangeas will bloom all month long. Roses take a break after their heavy late May peak, after which they’ll settle into their summer bloom pattern providing an abundance of good color and fragrance."
