I stopped over at the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum the other day to see the Magnolias in bloom. The 75 Magnolia varieties are on display in the Longenecker Gardens, near the visitor center. Bloom time varies from year to year, but I was surprised at how many are blooming synchronously this year. It's really quite spectacular.
Here are a few highlights in no particular order:
If you miss the show this year, there's always next year. Or, you can plan to visit when the 175 varieties of Crabapples are blooming in a couple of weeks.
