View Reports Below

This is the fourth 2024 New York Blooms Report from I LOVE NY. Reports are obtained from participating gardens, parks, and other partners and reflect anticipated blooming conditions for the week. Reports are issued every Wednesday afternoon.

Spring continues to make its presence felt across New York State, with beautiful magnolia, cherry blossom, tulip and other early blooms appearing in New York City and on Long Island, as well as some locations in the Hudson Valley, Finger Lakes, and Greater Niagara regions. This is according to the field reports from participating partners for the Empire State Development Division of Tourism’s I LOVE NY program.

What's In Bloom
  • New York City

    In New York City, observers at The Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn report full blooms on magnolias, cherry blossoms, and tulips. The Yoshino cherries and the Higan cherries are in full bloom, and staff are waiting for the Japanese flowering cherries to begin opening their flowers. The arboretum will host the Great Trees of Green-Wood and Family Tree Walk events this weekend. On April 28, Green-Wood will host a family program celebrating nature in the city. Also in Brooklyn, staff at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden report that cherry blossoms, and many magnolias, are in full bloom, while early blooms are appearing on tulips. The garden’s Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden’s weeping cherries still look great this week.

    Staff at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden on Staten Island report that Star magnolias and Saucer magnolias are now in full bloom, and yellow magnolias are budding. The garden’s Yoshino cherry trees are blooming, while their Kwanzan cherry trees are beginning to bud and will typically bloom in a week or two. Staff also report that early blooms are appearing on tulips.

    In the Bronx, observers at the New York Botanical Garden report that magnolias are in full bloom, including their Magnolia x soulangeana trees that are over 100 years old, as well as their 'Rustica Rubra' cultivar of the same age. Cherry blossoms are also in full bloom. One of their bigger collections of cherries, Prunus 'Akebono', located throughout the garden, are in peak bloom, along with their 92-year-old Prunus pendula var. ascendens. Early blooms are appearing on lilacs, with some early lilac cultivars a few weeks from bloom. Some rock garden species tulips are about to finish blooming, and other cultivars throughout the garden are about to open. Orchid Nights, a nighttime viewing of the garden’s orchid show, are taking place throughout the end of the orchid exhibition run for the next few weekends.

  • Long Island

    On Long Island, Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay reports that early blooms are appearing on magnolias and cherry blossoms. Last week’s cold weather disturbed some of the magnolias that had already bloomed, however many are still budded up and protected. The warm sunlight from the latter part of this week has helped and new blooms have been spotted. More cherry blossoms have begun to open, and there is a spectrum of blooms; some are almost full, and others are tightly budded. Planting Fields has approximately 100 cherry trees including varieties such as Sargent’s cherry, Yoshino cherry, Black cherry, Higan cherry, Japanese flowering cherry, Weeping Higan cherry, Okame cherry and several hybrids. Planting Fields’ lilacs are budding. The arboretum is home to a beautifully designed Lilac Walk by the Blue Pool Garden that dates to the 1920s. Healthy green leaves are continuing to appear on the rose bushes and rose arbor, but there is currently no budding. Other special blooms at Planting fields include hellebores, which are scattered throughout the site, and are more abundant in some places than others; periwinkle, which has been spotted popping up and providing a beautiful blue hue to the Synoptic Garden and around the Camellia Greenhouse; and hyacinth, which has been spotted by Coe Hall. Upcoming events include a Spring 5K on April 20, an Arbor Day Festival on April 27, and a Flower Framing Workshop on May 4.

    In Manorville and Riverhead, staff at Waterdrinker Family Farm & Garden report that some blooms are starting to appear on tulips, and they are hopeful that the majority will have bloomed by April 12 at both of their locations, which will also host the Long Island Tulip Festival from April 13 – May 10.
