During the Chrysanthemum Festival at Longwood Gardens, October 19 through November 22, more than 20,000 colorful, blooming chrysanthemums flourish in the palatial Conservatory. Longwood’s experts have trained these fall favorites into unique forms including towering single-stemmed beauties and thousand-bloomers.
The show reaches its peak bloom during the first three weeks of November. This year, a cloud of topiary bees above the indoor lawns are poised to pollinate the beds of flowers beneath. Topairy forms, including butterflies, spirals and our largest thousand bloom chrysanthemum ever, with over 700 blooms, adorn the Conservatory.
