Beautiful Gardens Bloom Throughout Maryland

Maryland's gardens mean visitors can enjoy the beauty and fragrance of flowers wherever they travel in the state.

Salisbury University Arboretum

Founded in 1988, the Salisbury University Arboretum is a celebrated collection of vibrant gardens, sculptures, trees, and other native and not-native plant life. The arboretum areas are thoughtfully spread across the 167-acre Salisbury University campus in eastern Maryland.

Salisbury visitors won’t want to miss their chance to explore the campus and view the colorful gardens – specific must-sees include Vardar Valley near Holloway Hall and the huge Magnolia Collection. Don’t forget to check out the variety of sculptures as well.

Sherwood Gardens

Escape to a beautiful oasis during your next visit to Baltimore . Sherwood Gardens is the place to be. The history of the park dates back to the 1920s, when John W. Sherwood planted a garden of tulips from the Netherlands.

Today, this wonderful six-acre park is filled with approximately 80,000 tulips, beautiful evergreens, old English boxwoods, bright azaleas, and rare trees.

Spend the afternoon strolling the grounds to view the magnificent tulips, as well as, the flowering dogwood trees, wisteria, magnolias and flowering cherry trees. Spring time remains the best season to view the variety of flowering bulbs in Baltimore.
At the end of each season, bring your spade to help dig up the tulip bulbs. Visitors may purchase the bulbs for a nominal fee. The garden will once again be ready for the planting of the new tulip bulbs for the next season's flowering.
