In spring, you will be amazed by the latest creation of Cheverny Castle: a flamboyant ribbon of tulips that for three weeks in April illuminates the west of the castle with its gradient of colours. To obtain this 10-metre wide flowerbed, the gardeners planted no less than 100,000 bulbs!

Between the redwoods and Lebanese cedars that have dominated the park for nearly two centuries, visitors can discover this multicoloured flowerbed in front of the castle on a ribbon more than 100 metres long. Several types of bulbs are planted to display different characteristics. Some tulips are more resistant, others larger, but all have the particularity of being perfectly coloured to bring an original touch to this immense English park.

The tulip garden is in bloom from March to April each year.
