Though May might be the peak of spring bloom, there is still plenty of interest in June.  Rhododendrons, Mountain Laurel, and Kousa Dogwoods add plenty of late-spring color to the landscape. The annual and perennial plants planted in flower beds throughout the Cemetery are now also at their peak.

Here is some of what you’ll find in bloom in June:

Early June
Kousa Dogwood

Mid to Late June
Chinese Chestnut
Japanese Tree-lilac
Mountain Laurel
Summer annuals
Summer Spireas
Sweet Mockorange
Tree of Heaven
Tulip Tree

*Please remember that nature is unpredictable and that this blooming schedule is only a guide. A late spring can delay blooming by as much as two weeks. Depending on location within the Cemetery, some plants of the same varieity may bloom up to several weeks apart.
