Colonies in Bloom

for those who love flowers

Saturday, June 25th, 2022 & Saturday, July 23rd, 2022 from 10am – 4pm

Several of our local gardeners open their yards to visitors who may stroll and see the fruits of their hard work! The Colonies are blessed to have so many talented gardeners that are dedicated to their hobby. Twice each growing season we select the best yards and gardens and these private individuals open them up for you to see.

This event is free and you will fill an entire day traveling through the Amana Colonies to the selected homes. Each one is different and unique. Some are tended by master gardeners and others by residents that just love their garden. You’ll see flowers and green plants along with vegetable gardens. Some rare plants, beautiful displays of color, and get tips on how these masters grow their favorites.

The first Colonies in Bloom date was on June 25th, and the upcoming second date is July 23rd from 10am-4pm. There will be a number of gardens on this self-guided garden tour through the Amana Colonies! We will have printed maps with locations and garden descriptions to help you find each garden and to provide some information about the event, each garden, and our Garden Party which follows the garden tour.
