Tulsa Botanic Garden Welcomes Spring With Botanic Blooms Concerts

  • April 27, 2023

The Tulsa Botanic Garden is welcoming the spring season with its annual Botanic Blooms festival.

You can check out the flowers, listen to live music, and enjoy the beauty.

“Hundreds of thousands of flowers of bright colors are blooming – just in time for the start of spring.”

You can see signs of winter leaving and spring coming with the sun peeking through and flowers growing.

Tulsa Botanic Blooms is shining bright with yellow, purple, and pink colors.

Director of Communications and Outreach Lori Hutson says this is a long time in the making. The blooms were ordered in June.

“It’s probably one of the largest spring flowering bulb festivals in the state or in the region. Over the course of about four to six weeks, we have about 200,000 plus bulbs that will be blooming, including daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, so we have a lot of color to come out and see,” Hutson said.

She says more daffodils and hyacinths have been planted this year.

Starting this week, the garden will feature local musicians each Thursday evening for people to walk through the garden to the background of live music.

This Saturday is Tiptoe through the Tulips, a garden party with music, food, and drinks.

“They can bring chairs out on our lawn and just stroll through the garden, see some color, wind down from the day, and enjoy a nice evening,” Hutson said.
