Mount Auburn is painted in shades of yellow, pink, white and lilac thanks to the daffodils, forsythia, magnolias, and redbuds now blooming. For many, though, it is the April flowering of Mount Auburn’s 20+ varieites of ornamental cherries that truly signal spring’s arrival.
Here is some of what you’ll find in bloom in April:

*Please remember that nature is unpredictable and that this blooming schedule is only a guide. A late spring can delay blooming by as much as two weeks. Depending on location within the Cemetery, some plants of the same varieity may bloom up to several weeks apart.
