With the help of Kip DeHart, the landscape director of the Norton Botanical Gardens, our guide will show visitors through the outdoor art and floral displays that grace the various “regions” of our green exhibition space, with areas devoted to the flora and fauna extending from New England to the Southwest and plenty of beautiful spaces in between. While winding through astounding displays of our many varieties of azaleas and other flowers and shrubs, the tour will also visit a number of outdoor works of art, such as the bronze Louisiana Pelican with wings spread wide that overlooks the culminating pond of our water gardens. It will also pause at recently enhanced floral exhibits, including the gardens’ stands of Japanese maples, entrancing beds of camellias, and the xeriscape garden of water-wise plants. We do advise wearing walking shoes and it’s important that any visitors can easily handle slopes and steps. Do dark skies threaten on the day of the tour? Fear not! In that case, you’ll be treated to the April Showers Tour, enjoying spring-themed art throughout the museum.
