Colonies in Bloom
July 25 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
“Colonies in Bloom” features the Amana Colonies bathed in flowers. This summer-long event in the seven villages has two very special days; June 27th and July 25th, when selected private gardens, will be open to the public. The garden display changes throughout the summer as each flower reaches its peak. Private gardens that are open will display both an American and German flag in their yard and the gardeners will be on hand to explain their specific yard and plants. Stop by the Amana Visitor Center or any of our businesses to pick-up a map of the gardens and best flower displays.
Most of the private gardens will be open from 10am to 4pm. Remember look for the American and German flags.
A drive through the seven villages will be a feast for the eyes as both businesses and residents in all villages or proud of their beautiful flowers but mark your calendar for these two dates as you will get an in-depth view at some amazing gardens and some rare plants.
As an added bonus our famous Lotus Lilies are in bloom on our Lily Lake between the villages of Amana and Middle Amana in late July and early August.
There will be an added special event on the evening of July 25th; it’s a Garden Party at the Amana Heritage Museum from 6pm-9pm that includes a Jazz duo, food and beverages.
