Biltmore Annual Festival of Flowers
mid March –
Asheville, North Carolina
The Biltmore Annual Festival of Flowers celebrates the beauty of George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre property.
Biltmore’s gardens, Olmsted’s final and most grand project, have been in existence for over 120 years, and continue to mature and become more beautiful as time passes.
A meadow of white, purple, pink, yellow and red tulips welcomes guests at the estate’s entrance. Tulips in the Walled Garden shine in hues of purple, orange, yellow and white. Mid-festival will feature lavender shades of alyssum, orange snapdragons, poppies, dianthus and digitalis for a rainbow-colored finish in the Walled Garden.
Additional Festival of Flowers activities include live music daily in the Conservatory and Winter Garden. Also an “Ask a Gardener” station features Biltmore’s horticulture experts who answer guest questions and there is also an art show at Deerpark, and daily seminars are held in A Gardener’s Place in the Conservatory covering all manner of topics from culinary herbs and edible flowers, to how to celebrate Spring with wreaths.
Biltmore is set against the natural beauty of the mountains as well as the majestic house and gardens and is family-owned enterprise, passionate about preservation through self-sufficiency — a philosophy embraced before the first stone was ever put in place. As they say. it was true in 1895 and it remains true today.
