Tulip Extravaganza

Submitted by on February 17, 2011 – 2:06 pmNo Comment

The sixth annual Tower Chapel Tulip Exhibition will be held at Mountain View Cemetery, 5000 Piedmont Avenue, Oakland, California, March 25 through 27, 2011. Hours each day are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Unfortunately, it’s not tulips-in-the-landscape, but floral arrangements that feature tulips. These will be created by Bay Area florists, garden clubs, and college floral design classes.

Admission to the cemetery and the exhibition is free; no reservations or tickets are required. Simply stop by.

(Of special interest to Road Trips Gardeners, Mountain View Cemetery was designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.)
