The mission of the Miller Botanical Garden is to enhance horticulture in the tradition of Elisabeth Carey Miller by discovering, displaying, evaluating, and disseminating information about plants suitable for the Pacific Northwest. The staff is encouraged to travel and learn about plants from around the world in return for relating their experiences to others. To further our educational outreach, horticultural professionals from our region volunteer their expertise to participate in our plant awards program, Great Plant Picks. This program is committed to building a comprehensive palette of outstanding plants for maritime Pacific Northwest gardens.
Visitation to the garden being limited, many classes and lectures are held off the garden premises. If your gardening group is interested in having a class or lecture please contact the staff about fees and scheduling information.
For questions about gardening, visit the Plant Answer Line, a wonderful resource provided by the Elisabeth C. Miller Library at the Center for Urban Horticulture.
