What’s blooming in the garden? Dahlias!
More than 30 varieties, grown from tubers, are blooming at Sequim’s Terrace Garden in late September and continuing into October. Native to Mexico, the plant has been hybridized over centuries. Blooms come in various sizes, shapes and colors. There are sizes of blooms from 1-10 inches in diameter, but you will never see a blue dahlia.
A reminder that the flowers in the garden are for everyone, please do not pick or cut the flowers. The Sequim Botanical Garden is not a cutting garden, but rather an educational display for everyone to enjoy.
The Sequim Botanical Garden Society (SBGS) maintains the Terrace Garden, located near the bandshell in Carrie Blake Community Park.
SBGS is a volunteer partner with the City of Sequim and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides information and a visual demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices.
To connect with the group or learn about volunteer opportunities in the garden, contact SBGS president Dona Brock at BROCKDL88@gmail.com or 360-460-8865 and find SBGS on Facebook at fb.me/SequimBotanicalGarden or visit Sequim BotanicalGarden.org.
