Visit to PowellsWood Garden

 PowellsWood includes a 3-acre garden and a 35-acre native woodland. It's located in Federal Way, WA, just a half-an-hour away from Seattle. 
There are several distinct rooms in the garden, and the following pictures show some of them.
I also provided links to the garden's website with beautiful photographs of those rooms.

The entrance gate

Actinidia tetramera var.maloides (Rosy crab-apple kiwi)
arch leading to the Entry Garden

Beautiful assortment of ground covers

House Garden and Perennial Border were excitingly beautiful with a variety of plants and their combinations:

Spring Garden obviously is beautiful in spring, but even in July it was charming!
Shirotae cherry trees with Hakonechloa grass and begonias hypnotized me and made this part of the Garden my favorite. Mossy branches and the trees' shadows are gorgeous!

I loved all the shade-loving plants in the Garden.


Woodland Garden with its Douglas firs and masses of ferns has an overlook with a view of the trails and ravine.

I hope you enjoyed this beautiful place!

  1. This is high on my "places to go" list. I see their photos on my Instagram feed. It looks so beautiful.

    1. Thank you, Phillip! It's not as big as I expected, but I like it - you don't get overwhelmed!
      I hope Portland will get clean air very soon! Stay safe!

  2. Powellswood is a beautiful garden. It's good to see it looking so lovely. They must be pumping the water on it now.

    1. Linda, thank you! It would be nice to see it in spring with all those bulbs in the Spring garden!
      I hope we'll get some rain next week as they promise!

  3. Yes, this is our local jewel!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
