Spring is here!

Spring at Meijer Gardens

Can’t wait for the beautiful spring bulbs to sprout in your garden? Check out ours in the Seasonal Display Greenhouse on your way to see the butterflies. The fresh smells of hyacinth are the first thing you notice as you approach. Then your eyes are dazzled by the vibrant pinks and yellows, the smoky blues and purples, and the silky whites. When the sun shines through the glass walls and ceiling, it’s just like being outside.

The Seasonal Display Greenhouse currently is home to a variety of tulips, primrose, hydrangea, Japanese pieris and azalea. (Plantings change with each season.) There is also a tall, woody perennial called a Winterberry that features small, bright red berries set against green leaves. And you can’t miss the Rhododendrons with their dark green leaves and smoky purple flowers. Finally, there are the Juniper Trees; in the spring, they sport small berries that look a lot like blueberries.
