Many of the botanical garden’s plants were salvaged from land bought as part of the expansion of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. As you enter the garden, the 1-acre Elda Behm Paradise Garden nestles up against a forest on the right. A recirculating stream flows through a 100 foot long series of waterfalls before emptying into a 7,000 gallon pond. Sunny borders are packed with a bewildering variety of Elda’s favorites, and 10,000-square-foot shade garden is cloaked in a canopy of alders and madronas. Continue east from the entrance and you’ll find gardens of maintained by the King County Iris Society and the Puget Sound Daylily Club, and a formal rose garden maintained by the Seattle Rose Society featuring over 100 labeled roses. Weddings are held on the central lawn area within the rose beds.
