Dixon Blooms: A Celebration of Spring
Dixon Gallery and Gardens, 4339 Park Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee, always has something beautiful to see in its gardens. This spring the gardens featured more than 125,000 bulbs, including tulips, hyacinth, crocus, daffodils, and galanthus, to put on a remarkable show of beauty.
The largest of the gardens at Dixon is the Woodland Garden, a canopy of oaks and hickories, understory dogwoods, ferns, wildflowers and other plants native to the Mid-South.
Surrounded by four species of boxwood, the Formal Gardens exhibit a “sacred geometry,” a design with origins in ancient Persia. The Formal Gardens are composed of three rooms: the first is planted with seasonal color; the second contains a bronze planter supported by Cherubs, which the Dixons brought back from one of their travels; the third is home to two large Camellia japonicas which bloom red and pink and are quite old. There are numerous pathways linking the various parts of the gardens, so that there is a new view just around the corner.
If you haven’t yet made it to take in the variety of blooms, here are some eye-catching photos of the sights at the Dixon Spring Gardens. Find more information at: www.dixon.org
