Showcasing northwest plants since 1963

Referred to as Snohomish County's 'treasure', the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens is both a place of beauty and education and is free to the public. Located on 3 acres in Everett Washington, its ten themed gardens include the Urban Tree Walk, Entrance Garden, Rock Garden, Northwest Native Plant Trail, Rain Garden, Japanese Maple Grove, Northwest Demonstration Garden, Viewing Mound, Woodland and Conifer Gardens as well as the 200' Snohomish County Master Gardener's Demonstration Border and sculptures throughout. Weaving through these gardens are ADA approved pervious pathways in most areas. There are countless ways to experience and enjoy all that the Evergreen Arboretum has to offer; docent-led tours, free educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.

Our website is currently under reconstruction, much like our gardens. The Virtual Tours are being updated. Please excuse the mess. It will be cleaned up soon, and better than ever!
The Evergreen Arboretum Board would like to thank the folks who bought stainless steel leaves for the South Area wall we have planned. We appreciate your patience with the process, and we are working with Parks to get them installed. It will be a bit longer, and we will keep you in the loop moving forward. Needless to say, we apologize for how long it's taking.



Free to members, $20 for non-members. Registration fee includes 1 year individual membership.

SHADE GARDENING Sat, Aug19. Noon-1PM: Free

Instructor:  Marylou Hart, Master Gardener

Not all plants need or want to grow in full sun. In fact, some prefer the shade. Come learn about these plants that thrive in the shade and their needs. Informational handouts will be available on plants that require full, partial and dappled shade as well as dry and wet shade. Tour the newly planted areas of our Arboretum shade garden to gather ideas for your own garden. Meet at the front entrance to the Evergreen Arboretum.

The mission of the Evergreen Arboretum Foundation is to create and maintain an inspirational arboretum and gardens accessible to all, internationally-acclaimed and locally-enjoyed for its plant diversity, original art and educational opportunities.
