SPRINGFIELD, MO — The tulips are blooming early this year at Evangel, and university officials are once again inviting residents of the Springfield area to visit the campus to enjoy the display of color. The annual photo opportunity has become a local tradition.
“Our bulbs are starting to bloom across the front of our campus,” said Paul K. Logsdon, director of public relations. “This is a perfect time for families to take their Easter photos.”
The grounds crew at Evangel planted approximately 9,000 bulbs last fall.
“The tulips in the flower beds facing south are in full bloom now, and the rest will bloom over the next week or two,” said Logsdon. “Bring your kids and bring your camera — we are happy to share the tulips with our community.”
The Evangel University campus is located at 1111 N. Glenstone Ave. in Springfield.
