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, educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.
Saturday, Sep 22, 10-1PM

If you have volunteered for any of our events, like our garden parties, the annual Plant Sale, the Everett Home and Garden show booth, our Sorticulture booth, or on our board, please, please, please come to the Arboretum on Saturday!

Not only will we have a wonderful luncheon prepared, but we will give folks the opportunity to plant something in the south area to call their own. 10-Noon, socializing and planting - then lunch for all!


On a sunny Sep 5th, Naomi Barger and her daughter planted a tree in the new south area of the Arboretum to honor the memory of Stu Barger, husband and father. What a wonderful way to give back to the community he loved and have a place of repose to visit and think of him. Thank you, Naomi, for donating this gorgeous tree to the Evergreen Arboretum. We will take excellent care of it.

The tree is Nyssa sylvatica 'Wildfire', also called Tupelo or Black Gum. It is seedless, which allows for easy maintenance, but it is a visual stunner, with bright red spring foliage, red tips all summer and beautiful yellow/orange and magenta in fall. Grows 30' to 40' tall and 20' to 25' wide Great foliage tree for shade and color all seasons.

The mission of the Evergreen Arboretum 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.
