An annual event is arriving, right on schedule, today at Red Butte Garden.
The Salt Lake City garden’s famous Spring Marshmallow Tree is reportedly blooming today — for one day only.
"We’re very proud of this tree," Marita Tewes Tyrolt, Red Butte’s horticulture director, said in a statement. "Our concern now is that a late snow may cause premature softening, creating difficult-to-harvest sticky blooms."
The tree’s marshmallows — in pastel blue, pink, yellow and white — only bloom one day a year, on April 1. Garden officials urge people to check them out today, along with the 400,000 spring bulbs of daffodil, hyacinth, iris and other spring regulars.
Said the garden’s marketing director, Bryn Ramjoue, "Only a fool would miss those blooms."
