Signs of spring: First flowers in Minns Garden

Record-breaking temperatures this week fueled early flowering of spring ephemerals in Minns Garden, including winter aconites (Eranthus hyemalis) and snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis).

If you visit the garden (located between Plant Science Building and Tower Road), you’ll also notice that Cornell Grounds Staff used the exceptional weather to remove much of the failing 80-year-old yew hedge that enclosed the garden, foretelling some major changes for the garden this summer.
