The floral beds will be bursting with ageratum, impatiens, lobelias, petunias, cleome, begonias, salvia, marigolds and zinnias during the summer. As it heats up, caladiums, lantana, the pride of Barbados, variegated tapioca, elephant ears, and coleus are added to the gardens.

Summer is always a great time for families to enjoy the outdoors, particularly at one of the most beautiful gardens in the world,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president, Reliant. “We’re glad to partner with the Dallas Arboretum on Dollar Days to give visitors a glimpse of nature at a very affordable price.”
