Seattle Chinese Garden 'Spring in Bloom' Open House Sun. March 16

information from the Seattle Chinese Garden

The flowering plum trees are now in full bloom along the Welcome Garden pathway and magnolia trees are bursting forth at Knowing the Spring Courtyard. The Garden welcomes visitors to enjoy a cup of Chinese tea and stroll the grounds to see recent enhancements and the new tree peony garden, which will bloom in May. Jon Geiger, Seattle Chinese Garden president, and garden manager Bob Seely will be on hand to chat with visitors and answer questions. An added attraction is Garden Light and Moon Magic, the new juried photo show of 40 garden images, on view in the nearby Chan Education Center.

A pathway now opens from the Chinese Garden directly to the South Seattle CC Arboretum, where early bloomers include rhododendrons, heather, and hellebore. Both gardens welcome dog walkers.
