We’ve planted Azaleas, Endless Summer Hydrangeas, Otto Luykens, Rhododendron and  Schip Laurels.  We planted a new perenial garden around the patio, which is already blooming like crazy.  Our groundskeeper is complaining that he needs a week off  from laying yards and yards of mulch.

There are also the Spring and Azalea Gardens to see.  During their celebration, April 3rd through May 16th, you can enjoy live music daily in the Winter Garden and in the Conservatory.
