  The Pacific Northwest's Premier Wildflower Show  
What a show! 

The final count on species topped 700.  The number of visitors was 1,110, but we know there were people who never got counted.

It was a great 50th anniversary celebration!
Founded in 1965, the Glide Wildflower Show is the largest display of native flora in the northwest.  Over 600 species of flowers, shrubs, grasses, ferns, lichens and mosses are gathered by dozens of collecting teams who travel throughout southwest Oregon from the Cascade Mountains to the coast.

Oregon's changing weather provides each year's event with a different combination of species in bloom.  Identity of each specimen is confirmed by professional botanists and artfully vased for display.

Additional displays feature noxious weeds, medicinal plants, natural dyes, and photographs of rare and endangered plants.

Mark your calendar the the last full weekend of April.
