Thousands of Flowers at George Eastman Museum in Rochester - Spectrum News
There's a place in Rochester where you can take a winter field trip indoors that can really help you "spring ahead." You have to see it and smell it to believe it. There are 14,000 flower bulbs in bloom at the George Eastman Museum for the annual Dutch Connection flower display. Dan Bellavia, Eastman Museum Landscape Manager, and a team of volunteers plant bulbs in more than 2,000 pots to display throughout the mansion.
"Yes, it starts in June and we work pretty much year-round. Once we get the bulbs in we start potting them and when it starts to get cold they go into the greenhouses and then we display the show for you," said Bellavia. "In 1895 George Eastman took a bike trip to the Netherlands and that is when he saw the fields of all the tulips that were there and he wrote a letter back to his mother talking about it. At that point, there were not a lot of tulips in this side of the world so he decided to bring them back and that was 10 years before he even moved into this house. From then on he star...

Gardening: Classic Gomphrena remains popular after hundreds of years - The Detroit News
Fields’ were stunning additions to our orange and yellow stand of Bidens, Zinnia ‘Zahara’ and marigolds last summer in the OPC display garden in Rochester.
A new selection, ‘Las Vegas Purple’, a vivid plum purple sporting small round flowers on a plant that has an upright growth habit, rising to 18 inches in height, is on my wish list. Though the flowers are relatively small and ball shaped, they attract attention because of their neon color.
These and other Gomphrena are popular for use as cut flowers and are easily dried for use in wreaths and other everlasting arrangements that will last for years.
New this season is a vegetative selection of Gomphrena, ‘Truffula Pink,’ from Proven Winners. It's a compact grower that produces bright pink flowers similar to the tall, bright pink see-through plant Gomphrena ‘Fireworks’ that also starred in the OPC display garden last season. Rising to 18 to 24 inches, it works well in garden plantings and containers and garnered rave reviews in trial gardens last year.
Gomphrena thrive in full sun and hot weather and grow best in moist but well-drained soil. They don’t tolerate wet soil and are best watered at ground level.

The best spots to see flowers bloom in metro Detroit
Meadow Brook Hall10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Memorial Day onwards350 Estate Drive, Rochester, MI 48309-4401Free admissionThe historic Dodge family's garden looks like something lifted straight from the pages of "The Secret Garden" (don't pretend you didn't read it). The formal English-style grounds have colorful rock walls, trimmed hedges, and ivy-lined doorways, making for a rather enchanting spring/summer experience. These gardens are known for their Virginia Bluebells in the surrounding wooded areas, and later in the year the rose garden is a thorny paradise too, providing a treat for the senses. Cranbrook House and Gardens 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., best from Memorial Day to October380 Lone Pine Road, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48303-0801Free admissionThe season gets started here with Daffodil Hill in bloom (4,000 bulbs were planted in the last two years) and then the picturesque Reflecting Pool hits its peak with Peonies. The Sunken Garden is a highlight, with beds along field-stone walls planted with a mixture of perennials and annuals, featuring pink, red, and white begonias this year. The Japanese Garden here is unique as well, with purple Liriope and Tree Peonies, and the Native Plant Rescue program is something to check out too. Flower Lane at The Ford House9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Sunday1100 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Shores, MI 48236$5 admission (free for children under 5) If you're willing to travel a little further afield (pun intended), the Flower Lane at Ford House is an amazing flower-viewing experience. Like most gardens, this will get a late start this year, but Daffodils, Virginia bluebells, and Tulips are the first to emerge. Last year, landscapers planted 6,000 Tulip bulbs, so you can expect to be tiptoeing through them when you visit. Carpets of white, yellow, and blue perennials brighten a stroll through the landscape designed by famous Danish-American architect Jens Jensen. Delphiniums, Lupines, Veronica, Shasta daisies and Daylilies also pave the way through the lane, while the grounds also have a Tribute Garden, Rose Garden, and a Butterfly House.
