Monthly Highlights

Cantigny’s Gardens and Grounds offer a wide variety of plantings throughout the year. Highlights can vary depending on the weather, however, these highlights offer a general guide for what to expect at any time of year.

Warm weather makes spring flowering or leafing out earlier and fall foliage slightly later. Conversely, cool weather delays spring flowering and leafing out and makes fall foliage change occur a bit earlier.
