The Mt. Cuba Center is a horticultural hot spot spanning 650 acres in the rolling hills of northern Delaware. Its woodland wildflower gardens are widely recognized as the finest in the region. That's because they contain about 2,000 species of plants found between Alabama and New York. See for yourself in this video by WHYY-TV 12 PBS:

The center is open year round, but operating hours change from season to season. Please call (302) 239-9642 or visit for details, including how to attend their annual Wildflower Celebration in April.
