While there, don’t miss out on a stroll through the gardens. Dazzling daffodils, fiery red tulips and pink and white magnolia blossoms are among the colors of the rainbow on display.

The 88-acre park features formal gardens, paths for strolling through woodlands and a children’s discovery garden.

Proceeds from the  plant sale go to the Wegerzyn Gardens Foundation to support special projects and programs at the metroPark.
