Massive displays of azaleas, 75,000 annuals, and 180,000 tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and other spring beauties take over the Dallas Arboretum from early March through early April each year. Each year festival-goers never miss the live presentations each weekend in the Johnson Color Garden featuring choirs, dance troupes, cow milking and interactive craft activities for children. Learn about native plants, wildflowers, xeriscaping and other gardening topics each weekend.
