US (MI): Meijer Gardens celebrates autumn with chrysanthemum exhibition

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park presents the annual fall horticulture exhibition, Chrysanthemums&More! opening to the public on September 18. 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 November 1.

Here guests will experience the natural and untamed sophistication of autumn in all its glory. Plant displays throughout Meijer Gardens will intentionally be open and airy, highlighting movement in contrast to a more traditional tight and manicured aesthetic of years past.

“This year’s theme for Chrysanthemums & More! is ‘Naturally’,” explained Steve LaWarre, Director of Horticulture. “Our goal is that guests can experience the more natural and untamed side of the autumn season through the various displays of color, texture and patterns that are carefully designed to play upon the natural beauty of the changing fall landscape.”

Visitors will be greeted with vibrant displays of chrysanthemums from the moment they arrive and delighted by abundant floral arrangements of these bold blooms as they walk through the BISSELL Corridor inside the main building. Upon entering the Grace Jarecki Seasonal Display Greenhouse, a floor-to-ceiling chrysanthemum display will unfold as a focal point. Presentations of 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 lush chrysanthemums will be arranged in sweeps of color and will be balanced by a variety of ornamental plantings that highlight nature’s beauty.
