'A World of Flowers'

The Dallas Arboretum is happy to present the theme “A World of Flowers.” Each week during Dallas Blooms showcases different regions of the world. Did you know that tulips are from Greece, not Holland? This annual event is one of the largest floral festivals in the southwest, with over a 100 varieties of spring bulbs exploding with color and 500,000 blooms that will dazzle you. Join us at the International Crossroads Village, located in Pecan Grove, where we will share the cultures around the world.
