Don’t miss the fantastic explosion of color at the University Place Spring Flower Show and Plant Sale on Saturday, May 2nd from 9-5 and Sunday, May 3rd from 10-2, at Homestead Park, 3715 Bridgeport Way, in University Place.
The show features an exhibit of over 400 Rhododendron trusses in all their rich colors. The free exhibit will feature a “Mountain of Flowers” display and is the fourth largest Rhododendron exhibit in the country.
A highlight of the Flower show is an incredible two-day plant sale offering a large selection of rare and unusual rhododendrons, azaleas, fuchsias, ferns, dahlias, roses and companion plants from specialty vendors across Puget Sound. The sale is known for its excellent value and competitive prices. Proceeds from the sale support the development and maintenance of the Homestead Park Rhododendron Garden.
The event also includes a self-guided walking tour of the five-acre Homestead Park Rhododendron Garden in full bloom.
