Filoli Blooming Calendar

The following reflect the typical bloom time for the bulbs, annuals, perennials, shrubs, vines and trees at Filoli. All of these times are weather dependent, and in a given month or year can fluctuate up to two weeks or more if temperatures are warmer or cooler than “normal.” Some of the plants listed, particularly the annuals, may not be represented in the Garden in a given year.

For the 2016 spring season, most plants are blooming two weeks earlier compared to a “normal” year. Please refer to the What’s Blooming page for the latest status of your favorite garden plants.
