Behind the Scenes at the Dallas Arboretum

Our goal is for the Arboretum to be beautiful 365 days a year! That’s a tall order, but our Arboretum staff aces it on continual basis. Learn some of the tricks of the trade as our PowerPoint takes you through a year behind the scenes, beginning with our award-winning Blooms Festival, through the enchanted Holidays at the Arboretum festival at the end of the year.

Dallas Arboretum Plant Trials

You probably know about our amazing gardens and the Arboretum’s commitment to education, but did you know that we’re also one of the top testing sites for new plants? Our goal is to find, promote and display the toughest plants for the home garden and the horticulture industry. Learn how this process works and how some of our past winners might be a great fit for your own garden.
