Where to See Spring Flowers in Boston

Boston Public Garden: America’s first botanical garden, the city’s Public Garden has been a haven for flower lovers since 1837. Located between Charles Street and Arlington Street, this Victorian-era garden always showcases a stunning display of seasonal flowers. In spring, tens of thousands of tulips brighten the beds!

Arnold Arboretum: The Arnold Arboretum, a 281-acre living museum in the Jamaica Plain and Roslindale neighborhoods, is another prime place to find spring blooms. Home to 15,000 plants, the Arboretum is renowned for its spring lilacs, cherries, magnolias, and crabapples. If you’re wondering where to see flowering trees, this is it! The Arboretum also holds events, including flower arranging and guided tours.

The Charles River Esplanade: Walk along the Charles River Esplanade to encounter local flora at its best. You can even catch a fitness class or cultural event during the same visit!

The Back Bay Fens: Nestled in the Fenway neighborhood, these gardens offer a mix of public and community-maintained spaces. The Kelleher Rose Garden, established 90 years ago, features over 200 rose varieties. The roses are in full bloom from mid-June to Labor Day, and visitors can learn about rose care and volunteer during “Tuesdays with Roses.”

Best Flowers to Grow in Boston

Boston’s climate, with its cold winters and warm summers, is suitable for a variety of flowering plants. Some of the best flowers to grow in Boston include tulips, daffodils, sunflowers, peonies, roses, and hydrangeas. These flowers thrive in the local conditions and add a burst of color to any garden. Consulting local resources like the Farmer’s Almanac can provide valuable flower garden tips on planting times and care instructions.
