The Longview Arboretum is constantly in bloom! Our volunteer brigades planted over 3,500 daffodils for an early spring display, countless canna lilies, and various pockets in the gardens will enjoy seasonal plantings. Of recent surprise is the Southern Living Garden, inside the North Gate. New plant material is regularly delivered to the arboretum, and we look forward to revealing the layers of discovery as each season grows new delights. The Gifting Tree, located inside the Visitor and Nature Center is our gift shop in partnership with Heartisan's Marketplace, and features fresh garden-centered inventory and charming surprises during their hours of 10a-4 Wednesdays-Saturdays.
