9/17/21 - Meijer Gardens Welcomes Chrysanthemums & More

Chrysanthemums and More exhibit runs through October 31.

Entering its' 23rd year, the Chrysanthemums & More exhibit is the largest of its kind in Michigan.

The Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is hosting their annual Chrysanthemums and More exhibit, showcasing thousands of blossoms spread out over the 158 acres of the gardens.  Steve LaWarre says this is the perfect time of year for the plant.


“Chrysanthemum, in order to flower, Chrysanthemums require short days, and long nights.  So they just naturally begin to flower at this time of the year.”


LaWarre says combined with the autumn colors they are a perfect companion to the season.


“The yellows, the oranges, the purples, and the varieties that are available, (and) they are just a perfect plant for the fall season.”


A number of events will coincide with the exhibition.  ‘Chrysanthemums and More’ runs from now through October 31.


Visit Chrysanthemums and More for more information on times and admissions.

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
