Wintergreen In Bloom

It’s going to be a perfect weekend with crystal clear skies, crisp temperatures and gentle breezes. It will be cool enough for a sweater, but with the sun shining, don’t forget sunscreen.

There’s tons to do this weekend at the resort, so in all your activity, keep an eye out for the wonder of the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge. Rhododendrons are in full bloom, as are ferns, plus one of my favorite trees, the fringe tree. If you’re on a hike and you catch a heavenly fragrance in the air, around the corner you’ll probably find a fringe tree. Commonly called “Old Man’s Beard", the fringe tree sports a beautiful cloud of flowers reminiscent of a white beard.The fragrance is an added joy.

Visit the Nature Center for the best hikes on where to find groves of natural rhododendrons, ferns and fringe trees! Next up to bloom – mountain laurel.
