Autumn at the Arboretum, Sept. 20-Nov. 26, 2014
Every autumn the Dallas Arboretum transforms with thousands of blazing colored florals. Over 50,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash come together to form the nationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village. A multitude of special events are also available throughout the week including a hay bale maze, scavenger hunts and the Tom Thumb pumpkin patch.
Autumn is the perfect time of year for a picnic in the gardens with friends, a fun family photo, or a leisurely walk among 150,000 blooming fall flowers such as chrysanthemums and impatiens. The fall foliage, cool weather and deep colors make Autumn at the Arboretum a must-see.
“Fall is really our most colorful time of year. Many of the summer flowers like zinnias, impatiens, salvia and coleus respond to cooler nights with blazing bursts of color. Our thousands of pumpkins bring out the color in banks of chrysanthemums that are layered with ornamental grasses, copper plants and firebush.” - Dave Forehand, Vice President of Gardens
