Tryon Creek Trillium Festival celebrates Spring (2014)
Native and hardy plant sale
April 5-6, 10 a.m.-4 p.m
Ready to bring Spring into your yard? Come to Tryon Creek’s native and hardy plant sale for vine maple, red flowering currant, salmonberry, Indian plum, Oregon grape, ferns, irises and wildflowers. Gardeners can choose from a large selection of trilliums–an early season favorite.
If you would rather look at flowers than plant them, join a guided nature hike hosted by Friends of Tryon Creek volunteers and park rangers. Learn about the value of native plants and how best to care for them at gardening presentations. The festival also includes local craft and garden art vendors.
The festival is free. Tryon Creek is just minutes from downtown Portland so parking at the park is limited, but parking with free shuttle service is available at Griswold Stadium (located just north of the park on Terwilliger Boulevard and Palatine Hill Road) on the Lewis and Clark Campus.
