Best Northwest Display Gardens

Wander a display garden and become inspired. There is no better way to be inspired whether you are landscaping a new home, tweaking an existing garden, or just enjoy being surrounded by beauty in a garden someone else gets to tend. The Pacific Northwest’s mild climate lends itself to a wide variety of garden plants that thrive three seasons of the year, and with plenty of evergreens, can still be beautiful even in winter.

These display gardens are a combination of free gardens and fee gardens. If you are lucky enough to live near one, many are a hive of activities for both children and adults, while others are an oasis of calm and beauty. The Pacific Northwest is also home to many specialty display gardens including the Hulda Klager Lilac Garden, Schriener’s Iris Garden, the famous Portland International Rose Test Garden, Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, Swan Island Dahlias, Rogerson Clematis Garden, Rhododendron Species Garden, the Portland Japanese Garden, Lan Su Chinese Garden, and the Seattle Chinese Garden. The Northwest has so many fabulous gardens to inspire you, you could be busy all year round!
