Chase Garden, located near Graham, Wash., one hour south of Seattle on the way to Mount Rainier, sits on a bluff overlooking the Puyallup River valley and features spectacular views of the mountain. It is one of sixteen Garden Conservancy preservation projects across the country and is noted for its exceptional beauty and originality.

Soos Creek Botanical Garden

We are dedicated to promoting the enjoyment, understanding and conservation of plants and the natural world along with our community’s local history through education, research, and stewardship. We invite you to experience our gardens and programs with us, as we continue to enhance them.


A series of exquisite hedges help define several distinct garden rooms graced with more than a thousand varieties of trees, shrubs and perennials. The woodland and shade gardens in particular demonstrate how private landowners can use natural land features to develop stunning landscapes.

Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden

The Rhododendron Species Foundation & Botanical Garden is an organization dedicated to the conservation, public display, and distribution of Rhododendron species. Home to one of the largest collections of species rhododendrons in the world, the garden displays over 700 of the more than 1,000 species found in the wilds of North America, Europe, and Asia, as well as the tropical regions of southeast Asia and northern Australia.

Lakewold Garden

Located in Lakewood, Washington, Lakewold offers landscape architecture by Thomas Church surrounded by rare and native plants, State Champion trees, over 900 rhododendrons, 30 Japanese maples and stunning statuary. A Washington State historic landmark, Lakewold's Georgian-style mansion and historic architecture complete the 10 acres where visitors can step back in time to an elegant past or enjoy a relaxing moment to contemplate the future.

Old Goat Farm

Located just outside of Orting, WA, tucked below Mt. Rainier, The Old Goat Farm is home to a myriad of plants and animals, including a couple of goats, turkeys, peacocks, dogs and cats.

Our mission is to offer well-grown garden plants that we also showcase in our garden. We are plant enthusiasts and we hope that there is something that will appeal to everyone. We grow our plants in small numbers.
