More Flower Events Now That The Tulip Festival Is Done

If you're anything like us, the the end of the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival kinda feels like the day after Christmas as a kid. But like a kid who's birthday is only a month or so after Christmas, we don't have to wait long for more floral fun here in Mt. Hood Territory.

The Rogerson Clematis Garden opens their greenhouse for extended hours May through October and the main garden is open from dawn to dusk daily. Clematis are known as the "Queen of the Vines" and take a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. There is always something blooming and by checking out their What's In Bloom page you can see exactly what's showing color any day of the year. The clematis are displayed in a residential setting which allows visitors to see how well they will pair with other plants in their own gardens. For even more helpful information, schedule a docent-lead tour for the insiders scoop and to purchase your favorites.

The Clackamas County Lavender Festival kicks off every June at Liberty Natural Products outside of Oregon City at their Oregon Lavender Farm. Beyond the fact that they have seemingly endless rows of sweet, fragrant lavender, there's live music, vendors selling lavender products, food, lavender ice creams and various demonstrations of all the things you can do with this versatile flower. Find them at 20949 S. Harris Road, Oregon City

Eagle Creek Lavender also opens their doors for their fourth annual Lavender Festival. This beautiful farm, located along the banks of the Clackamas River in the town of Eagle Creek (hence the name) offers live music, vendors, u-cut lavender and a great selection of lavender products. If you have someone not into flowers, perhaps the display of antique cars will pique their interest, so you can still get your flower on. They're also one of the participating farms along the Oregon Lavender Association Farm Tour, taking place June 22-23 from 10am-4pm. They're located at 27525 SE Starr Rd. in Eagle Creek. Barn Owl Nursery in Wilsonville is another gorgeous farm on that tour being held June 21-23 from 10am-5pm. They'll be showcasing their fresh-cut bouquets along with other herb plants. Don't miss their culinary lavender, perfect for teas and other food and drink applications.

Once the lavender festivities are done, it's only a short wait to the annual Dahlia Festival put on by Swan Island Dahlias in Canby. 

The folks at Swan Island Dahlias know their stuff. They have an endless selection of different dahlias to choose from, many of which were first invented by them. Can you invent a flower? Either way, they were the first to breed many of those flowers, and they are simply stunning. From small pom-pom types to flowers that are literally larger than my head, the variety is dizzying. 

The dahlia festival is free, running August 24-26 and August 31 through September 2 at their farm over at 995 NW 22nd Ave. in Canby

Each of these events offer a lot of fun opportunities, not to mention great photo ops. Don't forget to tag your amazing images with #omht on social media so we can ooh and ahh along with you.
