Dallas Blooms Flower Festival: Deep in the Hearts of Texans
The Dallas Arboretum Celebrates the 31st Year of Dallas Blooms with “Deep in the Hearts of Texans”. The floral festival begins on February 28 and continues through April 12. The Dallas Blooms is the largest floral festival in the Southwest, has been a tradition for 30 years, and this year’s theme plays homage to the beloved state: Dallas Blooms: Deep in the Hearts of Texans. Presented by Bank of America, This year’s Texas-sized extravaganza features more than 500,000 spring blooming bulbs along with life-size Texas themed topiaries, entertainment, food and special activities celebrating the state.
Dallas Blooms features tulips, daffodils, Dutch Iris and hyacinths, pansies, violas and thousands of other springtime annuals and perennials that bloom throughout the entire festival, so the garden changes all the time. The finale of this celebration is the mass flowering of the garden’s collection of 3,000 azaleas that bloom through the end of April.
