More Flower Events Now That The Tulip Festival Is Done

Rogerson Clematis Garden

The Rogerson Clematis Garden located at Luscher Farm is open to visitors year round who would like to stroll through the blooms. Clematis are known as the "Queen of the Vines" and take a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. There is always something blooming throughout 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.

Canemah Bluff Nature Park

Canemah Bluff Nature Park in Oregon City is a beautiful facility perched high above the Willamette River on a basalt bluff... hence the name. It's a gorgeous spot year round, but spring is special as camas and other wildflowers bloom amidst white oak in the meadowed areas of the park. It's an ideal park for an easy nature hike with kids. If they still have some energy afterwards, there's a fun play structure at the entrance.

917 4th Avenue, Oregon City

Camassia Nature Preserve - West Linn

Across the river is Camassia Nature Preserve in West Linn. You'll also find fields filled with camas lilies bursting forth in purple splendor. Keep an eye out for other wildflowers mixed in, like blue eyed Mary, and the official state flower, Oregon Grape, among many others. The main loop trail is an easy, one-way walk. There are a number of short side trails, but they can be more difficult and quite muddy during rainy times, so use caution.

Clackamas County Lavender Festival

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. So be sure to save the date for the 2022 festival, taking place June 25-26.

More Lavender At Barn Owl Nursery

Swan Island Dahlia Festival

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 and runs for two weekends at the end of August/beginning of September at their farm over at 995 NW 22nd Ave, Canby
