Gardener's Focus: Specialty Mums at Hillwood

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of Hillwood’s greenhouse where visitors will learn how gardeners continue the fifty-five year tradition of propagating chrysanthemums for fresh cut flowers used in the weekly floral arrangements.  Hillwood grows over fifty different types of chrysanthemums from spoon and spider to football and anemone in an array of gorgeous fall colors.
