The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden’s Dallas Blooms is currently hosting its annual springtime festival, “The Artistry in Nature,” now until April 10.

The festival, presented by Bank of America, is the largest floral festival in the Southwest and Fodor rated the 2015 springtime festival as one of the best in America.

This year’s festival features 100 different kinds of bulbs and a total of 500,000 blooms to brighten up everyone’s springtime season.

Currently, tulips, daffodils, pansies, violas, poppies, and thousands of other colorful annuals and perennials are featured at this time. The “grand finale” of the 2016 spring flower season will feature 3,000 azaleas blooming in April.

In addition to flowers, The Dallas Blooms is also presenting work by famed sculptor Gary Lee Price throughout the garden.

The Dallas Arboretum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and general admission tickets are available online or at the ticket booth. Prices for adults are $15 while children are $12.
