You’ll find them along the Heritage Trail, a 90-mile tour that will take you to plenty of other photo-worthy attractions as well as the blooming displays.  These unique floral gardens are planted in patterns inspired by the famous quilts produced in the region. Between May 30th until September 15th, approximately one million fragrant flowers bloom to form the famous quilt patterns.
