Longwood Gardens celebrates the harvest season with Autumn’s Colors, a festive showcase of fall colors. Longwood’s landscapes glow with shades of yellow, orange, purple, and red trees. Golden honey locusts and ginkgoes, scarlet sweet gums and sourwoods, and ruby northern red oaks add bursts of color.

Chrysanthemum Festival

From October 26 – November 24, more than 20,000 blooming chrysanthemums take over Longwood’s four-acre conservatory. Longwood’s experts have trained these fall favorites, creating cascades of color drape the Conservatory walls like flowery waterfalls.

The centerpiece of the festival is Longwood’s coveted Thousand Bloom chrysanthemum, the largest of its kind in North America.

You can see Longwood’s famous blooming Chrysanthemums flourish in the palatial Conservatory.

Come Prepared

Wear comfortable shoes and leave yourself ample time to take in as much of Longwoods’ 300 acres as possible.

Outsider Tip

Longwood Gardens hosts a series of spectacular performances featuring classical, organ music, jazz and more.

Don’t miss feature concerts by Longwood’s favorite carillonneurs in the historic 62-bell carillon. Stretch out on the lawn to enjoy the afternoon concert, then tour the Chimes Tower and meet the Carillonneur following the performance!
