Spring is the ideal time to enjoy gorgeous blooms at the Philadelphia region’s many gardens and arboretums, and luckily for us, one of the most stunning among them is right here in Delaware County, write Sandy Hingston, Laura Swartz, Emily Leaman, and Ashley Primis for the Philadelphia Magazine.

Tyler Arboretum in Media offers something for everybody. This 650-acre nonprofit preserve boasts 17 miles of hiking trails, amazing gardens and plant collections, over 195 documented species of birds, and a daffodils-filled meadow maze. In late summer, there is also a 1,400-square-foot butterfly house.

In late spring, the most stunning sights are provided by the blooming azaleas, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, and bottlebrushes.

And as a bonus, the annual plant sale takes place on Mother’s Day weekend.

Another garden spot worth your time this spring is Chanticleer in Wayne.

Chanticleer’s mile-long garden path takes you on a world tour through time. The Teacup Garden features tropical vines, a neatly planted cut flower and vegetable garden takes you back to Colonial days and the Ruin Garden adds partial stone walls, reflecting pools, sculptures, and trees paying homage to the 1925 home that once stood there.
