Hofstra Tulip Celebration: Explore Hofstra Roots

Visitors are sure to enjoy the annual tulip display during an afternoon that features two arboretum and outdoor sculpture tours and two indoor discussions on tulip history.

Patrice Dimino, Hofstra’s Landscape Designer and Assistant Curator will introduce you to the wide variety of bulbs that bloom throughout the arboretum from late winter to late spring. Learn the history of tulips, where bulbs originally come from and how they are grown.  Discover varieties of tulips, specialty spring-flowering bulbs and how these flowers get to us through the Holland Trade Market. 

Ms. Dimino’s design contributions to the university include various landscapes that range from beautification projects, memorial gardens as well as the annual campus-wide spring display of bulbs in honor of the university’s Dutch heritage.  Please join her in celebrating the beauty of spring.
