Kruckeberg plant of the month: Eucryphia

Monday, August 11, 2014

Plant name: Eucryphia glutinosa

Plant location: Entryway to the west of the courtyard under the Rhododendron auriculatum grove

Plant notes: Eucryphia glutinosa, also known as brushbush, is a charming small tree that demands attention during August when it blooms. Native to Chile, the beautiful white blossoms attract both bees and visitors. It also provides nice fall color. Our specimen is located just west of the cottage in the courtyard ... make sure to look up into the canopy as you walk by! This plant is available at MsK Nursery.

The Garden is located at 20312 15th Ave NW, Shoreline, WA 98177

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is a public garden containing a unique blend of Pacific Northwest native plants and unusual exotics in a naturalistic, wooded setting. Located in Shoreline, Washington, the Garden was founded in 1958 by Dr. Arthur Kruckeberg and his wife Mareen, who amassed the plant collection over 50 years in the property surrounding their home.

The Garden is now owned by the City of Shoreline and operated by the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF), a nonprofit organization.
