The Chrysanthemum Festival at Longwood Gardens will take place this fall from Saturday, Oct. 7, through Sunday, Nov. 19.
Last year there were more than 17,000 chrysanthemums on display.
For the annual event, the flowers are trained into giant orbs, spirals, columns, pagodas, and other unique forms.
To see the chrysanthemum displays illuminated by lanterns, check out the festival during extended evening hours on Oct. 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 or 28.
