Knoxville (WVLT) -- Our drought isn't keeping folks from checking checking out Bloomsday at the University of Tennessee Gardens.
The two day benefit wrapped up this evening on campus.
Bloomsday, in its fifth year, helps raise money to care for and maintain the UT Gardens.
"It's a huge community event," said Mary Collins-Shepard, the event's coordinator. "It allows folks from the community to come in and see all of the beautiful plants that do well in Tennessee. It's a trial area for annuals and perennials and its just a great opportunity for folks to learn things about what is going to do well in their garden.
Bloomsday's hosts were the Friends of the UT Gardens, the UT Institute of Agriculture and the Knoxville Experiment Station.
