Spring flowers in The Botanical Garden

The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala has spent several years overseeing and developing the collection of bulbs and tubers in The Botanical Garden. We have sown, replanted, and bought snowdrops, squills, fritillaries, and narcissi. Now, our flowerbeds and lawns blossom beautifully throughout spring. Daylilies, Crocus speciosus, and Colchicum are colourful additions to the flowerbeds in the summer and autumn.

Bulbous walk in The Botanical Garden

In the fall of 2018, 75.000 bulbs and tubers were planted in The Botanical Garden. Linneanum and other buildings have long been surrounded by lawns and flowerbeds that brighten up the garden in early spring. They, as well as our potted bulbs, exotic tubers, and recently planted species, are parts of The Botanical Garden’s collection of bulbs and tubers.

Here, you can download our map of areas with many bulbs and tubers(text in Swedish). The colours mark which part of the season the bulbs and tubers are in season. Areas marked with yellow flower in early spring (Mars-April), green areas flower in late spring (May) and red areas in fall.

Spring blossoming Croci in The Baroque Garden

The lawns inside the rows of lime trees in the baroque garden blossom beautifully in early spring. Every lawn area has its own variety of crocus with yellow or purple flowers. Along the southern wall you will find white and blue croci. You are welcome to enjoy the spring flowers of The Botanical Garden.
