Tulsa Botanic BLOOMS

Tulsa Botanic BLOOMS

Each spring one of the largest spring bulb displays in our region comes to life as over 120,000 tulips, daffodils and hyacinths begin to bloom at the Garden. Our A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces has over 5,700 sq. ft. of garden beds planted with bulbs in a different Art Deco-inspired pattern each year, cascading from the top of this terraced garden to the bottom.  Over 13,000 bulbs are planted in our Children's Discovery Garden each year.
