Beautiful, they had some flowers called Constellations. They looked like they were splashed/dotted with white paint. Very beautiful. I'd love to go later in the summer, to see them all much bigger.

They have thousands of flowers planted and labeled with little signs (very helpful) that are being grown to assess their health and beauty.

Yes, it's wheelchair accessible. Some views, though, require getting around a foot path on the grounds. For more detail, I would contact their website thru Colorado State University.
