HISTORY OF THE GARDENS

Walt and Jean Wasell purchased the property in 1985 and began plans for a beautiful garden in which they would place their home for maximum beauty and seclusion at the base of the nearby Olympic range.

The first things planted in the Dosewallips Valley garden was the cherry trees and oaks, carefully placed for shade and blooming beauty. They were planted in 1986, followed by the hundreds of rhododendron plants moved from the Poulsbo property that first fall season.

As time went by, the gardens were developed as a collector’s specimen garden, featuring a collection of trees and shrubbery all around the world. Included were Japanese maples, rhodies and azaleas, evergreen and specialty trees, and many exotic species.
