This Jaw-Dropping Wildflower Celebration Is The Best Spring Festival In Delaware
Yes, Delaware, this winter has seemed endless. We’ve been battling snow, ice, wind and rain since December, and there’s no end in sight to this brutal weather! We’ve got to look ahead, though, and keep on charging through. We’re only a few weeks away from the best spring kick-off festival in the state – Mt. Cuba’s Wildflower Celebration.
Each year, Mt. Cuba Center's Wildflower Celebration is the unofficial start to spring in Delaware.
This year, the festival is on Sunday, April 29th.
The Mt. Cuba Center is Delaware's only garden dedicated to native plants and wildlife, and visiting is a treat any time of year.
It is particularly lovely in early spring, when the stunning wildflowers are in full bloom.
The seemingly endless pathways through the garden's grounds will take you on a true adventure.
While you walk the paths, you'll find garden enthusiasts and volunteers who will tell you all sorts of interesting facts about the gardens and plants themselves.
Mt. Cuba is a favorite place for butterflies to visit. Look at the phlox plants to see how many beautiful butterflies you can spot.
This year, volunteers planted over 800 Blue Moon woodland phlox plants to give away, so you can attract butterflies to your own garden.
The scent and sight of these stunning flowers that line each pathway and field will stick in your mind forever.
Stop and rest by the gazebo, where you'll get to take in a beautiful view of Mt. Cuba's gorgeous pond.
The festival offers so much more than just wildflower spotting. Enjoy local food vendors, family activities, live entertainment and more.
One thing is certain - there is no more relaxing, enchanting way to welcome spring into Delaware than to attend Mt. Cuba's Wildflower Celebration.
Delaware’s gardens are some of the best in the country – and they’re all beautiful in the spring. Plan a trip to
The Secret Goodstay Gardens, The Magical Marion Coffin Gardens, or (of course!) Winterthur’s Enchanted Woods to get yourself ready for spring.
