Part 2. Breathtaking Charm: Lakewold Gardens, WA

This is a great time to visit spectacular spring display in historic Lakewold Gardens.
The Brick Walk with Mt. Fuji cherry trees.
This is a fine cherry species native to China, Japan and Korea. Cold hardiness zone 5-7.
As other garden's features, the Quatrefoil Pool was designed by renowned landscape architect, Thomas Church.

   Boxwood parterre beds are filled with flowering plants.

 Pacific dogwood (Cornus nuttalli) frame the Teahouse:
 The Teahouse's lattice structure supports two old fashioned climbing roses: Cecile Brunner and Kathleen. Two other species of dogwood are also located nearby, Korean dogwood (Cornus kousa) and Cornelian cherry dogwood (Cornus mass).

There are over 900 rhododendrons in the Gardens

Wagner house.
Read here about the  History of the place.
I place the pictures in no particular order. They are taken in different garden rooms:
Fern Display Garden, Shade Garden, Woodland Garden, Rock Garden, Rose/Cutting Garden, The Knot Garden, Library Courtyard.

Part 1 is  HERE 

To be continued.

  1. This time of year is so much fun to visit gardens. A friend and I enjoy doing it, and we learn so much from each garden we visit. I love the shape of the cherry trees in Lakewold...just is every feature of these gardens. Thank you for sharing your visit with us.

  2. This garden is so beautiful, thanks for sharing it with us. I went last year after the rhodies were done, and it was still stunning.

  3. Tatiana, I loved the photos of my favorite rhododendrons, white and purple! And the pictures of Teahouse is so quiet and calm.

  4. Tatyana, I am quite envious of all the beautiful public gardens in your area! Drool!

  5. What a wonderful garden. The various Rhodies blooming are so lovely! Not many folks plant Cornus mas... kind of a forgotten native. What a great stand of Japanese Forest Grass, Hakonechloa. Mine is still soooo tiny.

  6. How can you not love that place?

  7. A very inspirational garden. Thanks for sharing it with us.
