Flowers are a Bloom at this Asheville NC Bed and Breakfast

April 24th, 2010 by stacy

Everywhere you look around Asheville flowers are blooming, and our lovely Asheville Bed and Breakfast with it’s lush gardens, is no exception. Whether you are walking through our rolling green yard, strolling through town, touring the Biltmore Estate or hiking through Bent Creek’s Azalea Park, you’ll see blossoming flowers, tree and shrubs everywhere you look. After the winter Asheville experienced it’s a wonder anything has surfaced this spring.

Here at this Asheville  NC  Bed and Breakfast we have just finished weeks of landscaping, which included planting over 20 new shrubs of varying types. 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.

At the Biltmore House they are celebrating their 25 year anniversary of the Festival of Flowers. As you enter the estate on the main road you will find Tulips, Redbuds, Crabapples, Dogwoods, Fothergilla, Viburnums, Piedmont Azalea, Carolina Silverbell, Japanese Mahonia, Candytuft, Cornel Pink Azalea, Creeping Phlox, Celandine Poppy, and Foxglove.

The estate’s walled garden is bursting with Tulips, Tulips, and more Tulips! Candytuft, Creeping Phlox, Fothergilla, Dicentra, Chinese Wisteria, Pansies, and Virginia Bluebells.  The Shrub garden is a blaze with Hawthorns, Kerria, Heather, fragrant Viburnums, Lilacs, Forsythia, Oregon grape Holly, Warty Barberry, Early Azaleas, Crabapples, Creeping Flox, Windflowers, Solomon’s Seal, Diicentra Japanese and Chinese Wisteria. 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.

The Biltmore is also offering free seminars daily at A Gardener’s Place:

  • 1:00 p.m.: Creating five-minute centerpieces: fast and easy arranging.
  • 2:00 p.m.: How to “wreath” your door into spring.
  • 3:00 p.m.: Learn the basics of growing roses.

Don’t forget you can purchase your tickets to the Biltmore Estate at our lovely Asheville B & B while you’re here.

All That Jazz Weekend

All That Jazz Weekend

Start the car
I know a whoopee spot
Where the gin is cold
but the piano’s hot
It’s just a noisy hall
Where there’s a nightly brawl
And All That Jazz!
