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, free educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.


Plan to attend the Sat. Sept. 20th work party which will include our annual volunteer thank you lunch. 

Join us in the gardens from 10:00 AM to Noon to help with fall clean up, meet fellow volunteers and learn more about future plans for the arboretum. 

Our lunch will start at 11:30 for those planning to stay for our free monthly class. 


Rain Gardens with Zsofia Pasztor, Owner of Innovative Landscape Technologies

Rain gardens can be both beautiful and functional. Learn why they are so important, how to design and plant them, how they function and how easy they are to maintain.


Roundness of the Horizon – The Fossil by Katzutaka Uchida

Dedicated in Veronica “Wink” Cushman’s memory on March 29, 2014 as the newest addition to the arboretum’s permanent sculpture collection.  The arboretum thanks the Cushman family and Wink’s many friends for making this acquisition possible.  The sculpture will be relocated to a permanent home as part of the south arboretum completion in the spring of 2015.
