Port Angeles: Rotary Club flower bulbs distributed, planted this weekend

PORT ANGELES — Rotary Club members will distribute tens of thousands of flower bulbs this weekend in the hopes of brightening up the North Olympic Peninsula next spring.

In addition, members of the Port Angeles Rotary Club and volunteer helpers will plant thousands more bulbs along U.S. Highway 101 at the eastern entrance to Port Angeles.

The bulbs — tulips, miniature daffodils, iris and crocus — will bloom into the Rotary’s third annual Welcome Garden between March and June.

As a fund-raising event for the highway garden, the Rotarians in July and August took orders for imported Dutch bulbs as part of the shipment they’re bringing to Port Angeles for the beautification project, said Andrew May, a professional horticulturist and chairman of the Rotary Club effort.

More than 45,000 bulbs were sold, said May, who also writes the Peninsula Daily News gardening column, “A Growing Concern.”

Those orders can be picked up from the Rotary Club on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Recycled Earth Products Inc., across from Les Schwab Tires on U.S. 101.

A limited number of extra bulbs will be for sale on a first-come, first-served basis, May said.
