Be prepared to be enchanted by the genus Fuchsia. These showstoppers of the fall garden range in form from large shrubs to low ground covers. Since these perennials begin blooming as early as May and continue blooming until frost, they are still in their full glory as many other perennials have started to fade. Fuchsia Days is a celebration of these outstanding plants and their many uses in the Northwest garden. In addition to tours offered twice daily and cut flower displays, Fuchsia Days also includes resources for the home gardener, including information on designing with fuchsias, fuchsia care and planting, and where to purchase fuchsias locally. Labelled cut stems will also be on display in the Garden Room for the enjoyment of those unable to walk the trail to the special collection or those whose schedule does not permit them to join a tour.
Cost: $7; Youth $5; Children $3; Under 5 Free
