Initiated in the mid-1970's as an element of the Street Beautification Program, the City's floral displays are aided by Edmonds' mild marine climate which is suitable for a broad range of ornamental plants.
Over 20,000 plants are used in the overall flower program. The flowers selected must tolerate extreme weather conditions yet remain colorful from May to mid September. New color combinations and plant materials are developed yearly based on hardiness, ease of care, and performance. The flowers that adorn the hanging baskets and corner parks are grown from seed in City greenhouses.
Gateway planting can be found at the following location:
- Edmonds Way & 5th Ave S
- Puget Dr & 9th Ave N
- Caspers St & 9th Ave N
- Ferry Triangles
