Annual Plant Fair Offer Last Chance for Local Plants


Camas-Washougal Historical Society will host its final Plant Fair of the season Sunday, June 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Two Rivers Heritage Museum, 1 Durgan Street in Washougal.

 The fair features classic plants that thrive in local gardens and yards including the hard to find Camas Lilies.  Pots with three plants in each will be sold for just $6 each.

 “We also have the popular Canterbury Bells again this year,” said Alma Ladd, Plant Fair Organizer and museum plant lady.  “Our yellow Evening Primrose are in bloom now and are beautiful!” Other perennial plants for sale at the fair will include peonies, strawberries, raspberries, hellebores, blueberries, hosta lilies, a few small trees and more.  Volunteer built Robins’ Roosts will also be for sale.  

 Funds from the event will help support the work of the Camas-Washougal Historical Society to preserve and make available historical information that tells the story of the history and development of the area.

 The museum regular hours are Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Museum admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for students and free for children under 5 and all Camas/ Washougal Historical Society members. Call 360-835-8742 for more information or to schedule group tours any day of the week.

 “We hope these plant fairs help the community connect with our local heritage of beautiful gardens,” Ladd said.
