Hanging Nasturtiums at Isabella Gardner Museum
As part of this beloved annual tradition, the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum will have these vined flowers draped from the balconies of the courtyard — some hanging as long as 20 feet.
The annual Hanging Nasturtiums display continues an annual tradition started by Isabella during the week before Easter, marking the return of color to the Fenway.
They only last a few weeks so be sure to check them out!
About the Flowers
Nasturtium vines (Tropaeolum majus) are started from seed in June, planted in late summer and trained in the Museum’s greenhouses throughout the winter to prepare them for their spectacular spring debut.
The vines require continuous care in the greenhouse to ensure dramatic length—up to twenty feet—and require up to ten workers to install in the Museum. The result is a stunning display that cannot be found anywhere else.
*Museum Restoration Note:
The Third Floor of the Museum is currently off-view to the public due to the ongoing restoration of the Titian Room gallery. However the rest of the museum is open to enjoy.
