Darts Hill Garden is the result of over 60 years of work and dedication guided by the clear vision of Francisca Darts. Along with her husband Edwin, Francisca has taken a logged piece of land, turned it first into an award winning orchard and then into the unique garden that is Darts Hill.
One of the things that make Darts Hill Garden unique is the number of rare and unusual plants that can be seen there. As well, many specimens of these rare plants are mature. This allows the observer to clearly see and understand the distinctive aspects of the plant.
Francisca's curiosity and love of the new and interesting has resulted in the most diverse collection of Tree species in the Pacific Northwest. Most of these trees can be seen at a mature growth height, some having been planted over half a century ago.
