Edmonds Flower Program
Beautiful hanging flower baskets and corner parks bursting with color are a sure sign that spring has arrived in Edmonds. Visitors and residents look forward to the annual floral displays that herald the arrival of community fairs and festivals.
Started in the mid 1970s as part of the Street Beautification Program, the City’s floral displays benefit from Edmonds mild marine climate which suits for a broad range of ornamental plants.
The flowers selected must tolerate extreme weather conditions yet remain colorful from May to mid September. New color combinations and plant materials are developed yearly based on hardiness, ease of care, and performance. The flowers that adorn the hanging baskets and corner parks are grown from seed in City greenhouses. Hanging baskets are constructed by City staff. One day each spring, City staff and community volunteers’ work together to begin planting the parks and hanging baskets. Hanging baskets are going up during the first week of June.
A special thank you to the Edmonds Floredum Garden Club volunteers for plant all 151 baskets.
