Meerkerk Gardens
May 13, 2022
Sequim Prairie Garden Club members thoroughly enjoyed strolling throughout the 10 acres of beautiful display gardens at Meerkerk Gardens on Friday, May 13. We were lucky to see this 'peaceful, woodland garden' at its peak rhododendron bloom on a mostly sunny day. It features numerous species and hybrid rhododendrons, azaleas, and magnolias, in a variety of settings including varieties that favor full sun, deep shade and a mixture of sun and shade. The rhododendron gardens also include many interesting native and non-native tree species such as orangebark stewartia, corkscrew maple, and the deciduous dawn redwood.

The garden offers a picnic area with a beautiful view of Puget Sound and Camano Island, a Rhododendron Specialty Nursery, tours, and for those with time and energy, 43 acres of forest preserve complete with trails throughout. While best known for their amazing rhododendron display, the summer gardens feature dahlias, lilies and companion plants.
