Summer at the Arboretum

Celebrate the beauty and excitement of summer with activities and discounts for the whole family, and acres of vibrant color throughout the Dallas Arboretum.

On May 15, 2015, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will launch Summer at the Arboretum through July 31. Under the canopy of the Pecan Grove, the focal point for the festival, will be topiary Flower Houses that create a serene themed village.

Join us for outstanding floral displays, exciting activities, amazing discounts and fun for the whole family during Summer at the Dallas Arboretum. Don't miss our popular Dollar Days, featuring $1 general garden admission during the entire month of August.

As always, the Arboretum will display an incredible selection of seasonal plantings. During Summer at the Arboretum, the beds will be bursting with ageratum, impatiens, petunias, cleome, begonias, salvia, marigolds, lobelia and zinnias. As the temperatures warm, caladiums, lantana, pride of Barbados, variegated tapioca, elephant ears and coleus will be added to the gardens.
