Longwood's landscapes are painted with autumn's finest colors in October and November, as golden honey-locusts, scarlet sweet-gums, ruby red oaks and more create a patchwork of color!
During the Chrysanthemum Festival, October 29–November 20, more than 20,000 colorful, blooming chrysanthemums flourish in the palatial Conservatory.
