The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will transform into a magnificent explosion of color when Zoo Blooms kicks off this spring, running from April 1st - 30th, 2012. The zoo promises to be a palette of artistic color with a combination of more than 100,000 tulips. As one of only two accredited botanical gardens in Ohio, the Cincinnati Zoo offers one of the largest tulip displays in the Midwest. Dubbed “Tulip Mania,” Zoo Blooms will also feature more than one million daffodils, hyacinths, flowering trees, shrubs and other spring bulbs exploding with color.
Look for bright yellow and white daffodils blooming throughout the park. Many varieties of red and yellow tulips are the first to bloom followed by the main bloom in mid-April. More than 100,000 tulips provide every color you can imagine. Complementing the blooming bulbs are thousands of blooming trees and shrubs. This is just a sampling of the variety and beauty that can be found at the Zoo this spring! Plan a visit and enjoy the abundant beauty in our Garden!
