Showtimes is your ticket to what's in flower at the JC Raulston Arboretum where there's always something in flower.

Flower data presented in Showtimes is based upon information recorded in our photograph collection. By this, we mean we're not out in the gardens on a weekly basis taking flower data as done by some public gardens. The flower times presented here are based upon thousands of plants we've photographed at the JCRA through the years. As we photograph more and more plants, the Showtimes listing continues to grow.


At this time, we've photographed 252 taxa in flower at the JC Raulston Arboretum in November. A plain text list and graphical representation of all taxa throughout the year are also available. Click on the photographs to see additional photographs and click on the plant's botanical name to learn more about the plant.
