Heronswood Garden in the Late Summer

Back for a visit to one of the most beautiful gardens I know of … Heronswood Garden, located in Port Gamble, Washington. This is my first year visiting the garden, and I’ve been returning every few months to witness the change in seasonal blooms. My latest review of the garden is not disappointing in the least. In fact, it’s stunning! So much variety, and so much color! One of my favorites were the many varieties of Hydrangea.

And here are some photos of other sections of the garden. I don’t know what some of these plants are. If you recognize any, please feel free to leave a comment as to their ID.


Agapanthus –Lily of the Nile

Red Dahlia and Yellow Leopard Plant Flowers

Pink Speckled Stargazer Lily


There is so much more! Too many to show here! And then there are those plants that are bearing fruit right now. Arisaema seeds are just forming now. They will turn a bright red as the season progresses.

Arisaema – Commonly known as Jack-in-the-Pulpit

Here are other plants with their interesting, colorful fruits and berries.

    The fourth and fifth pictures of hydrangeas look almost lavender. I remember how all the hydrangeas I saw in your region were very blue! It got my attention because, before modern cultivars were developed, it was not easy to get our bright pink hydrangeas to bloom blue here, in our slightly alkaline soil. I was not looking at hydrangeas when I was there two Junes ago, but I suspect that pink, or at least lavender, is not such a difficult color there nowadays.

Thank you!
