About the event
Join us this Sunday, 2pm to 4pm, as we prepare for next spring/summer in the gardens with our ephemerals planting event at Kenwood Gardens.
Spring ephemerals are perennial wildflowers, such as tulips, crocus, and lilies, that complete their aboveground lifecycle in the early spring. These plants must grow, flower, be pollinated, set seeds, and store energy within a few short weeks — all before the trees and shrubs leaf out and cast shade on the forest floor during the winter. Generally, spring ephemerals bloom from approximately late March to early May in Chicago.
We’ll be meeting at the entrance of the Gardens. Gloves are recommended but not required. All ages are welcome.
