Step into the south and celebrate spring on the bayou!  The 2017 Spring Show Blooms on the Bayou is inspired by the colorful culture of New Orleans, which features both a fun, festive side of the ‘Big Easy’ as well as the eerie, yet enchanting, swampy southern bayou.  Wander down our bayou boardwalk in the midst of bald cypress trees, blossoming bog lilies, and Spanish moss to explore the mysterious river shack or dance to some Dixieland jazz in the traditional New Orleans courtyard surrounded by Crepe Myrtle and Magnolia trees glittered with beads!  Hundreds of vibrant annuals animate this display with charming camellias, dazzling tulips, fragrant hyacinths, and illustrious ferns of the French Quarter. So sit back, take it easy, and let this display take you away to the warm southern spring of the Louisiana bayou!
