    Summer at the Arboretum

    Summer at the Arboretum kicks off with the return of the Dallas Arboretum Flower Houses on Saturday, May 16. Pecan Grove will once again be filled with the whimsy and magic of four giant houses draped in red, white and blue as we continue our celebration of Texas. Featuring “Fairy Tales with a Texas Twist,” each house will appeal to the young and young and heart with storybook tie-ins and unmatched floral displays. Our good friends Lone Star and Blue Bonnet (our topiary longhorn duo) will keep us company throughout the summer months when they mosey on over to the showcase to join in on the Texas fun.
