What’s in bloom?

About our location

There’s always something in bloom at Bok Tower Gardens. The plant identification display located outside the Visitor Center has cuttings to show you what’s blooming every day with labels identifying both the Latin and common names. Many of the plants are available for sale in the plant shop. Both cold-hardy and semi-tropical plants grow here. Our growing conditions are: acid sandy soil, zone 9a of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone map, annual average rainfall of 52 inches (mainly in the summer), frost about every three years and light freezes every five years.
