Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park presents the annual fall horticulture exhibition, Chrysanthemums & More! opening to the public on September 20. This exhibition, the largest of its kind in Michigan, features expansive displays of chrysanthemums, fall foliage and family-friendly activities. The exhibition will be on display through October 27.
“Our theme this year is ‘Art of the Chrysanthemum’,” explained Steve LaWarre, Director of Horticulture. “While we always dream up and deliver dynamic displays of fall’s best flowers and foliage, this year’s horticultural artistry is more contemporary than classic. Specialty chrysanthemums take on intentionally modern forms which include intriguing groups of single hues and textures in vivid varieties and layered plantings.”
Upon entering the Grace Jarecki Seasonal Display Greenhouse, a floor-to-ceiling chrysanthemum display will unfold as a focal point. Presentations of a five-sphere topiary, large disbuds and beds of colorful plantings will complement this feature in the nearby Earl and Donnalee Holton Victorian Garden Parlor. Outdoors, expansive beds of chrysanthemums will be arranged in large sweeps of color and will be balanced by a variety of ornamental plantings.
