When daffodils begin to peer,
With heigh! the doxy over the dale,
Why, then comes in the sweet o’ the year;
For the red blood reigns in the winter’s pale.

– Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale

The Matthaei Botanical Gardens gears up for the 15th anniversary of Shakespeare in the Arb with a themed display of plants and flowers featured in Big Willy Shake’s most notable works, like Oxlips, Carnations and Columbines.
