What You'll Get
Gardens are packed with natural phenomena, such as the Venus Flytrap's insect-catching tractor beam, and the Pacific tree frog's ability to camouflage itself to David Bowie's wardrobe. Observe the high-tech achievements of nature with today's Groupon to Oregon Garden, located about 43 miles south of Portland in Silverton. Choose from the following two membership options:
- For $35, you get the Trillium membership (a $75 value), which includes a full year of admission for two adults and a 2% discount on facility rentals.
- For $45, you get the Rose membership (a $100 value), which includes a full year of admission for two adults and up to four children (17 and under), as well as a 4% discount on facility rentals.
Both memberships get you a bounty of benefits, including reciprocal admission to more than 200 North American gardens and a subscription to The Perennial, the members-only newsletter that'll feed the photosynthesis addiction of floral fanatics. You'll also receive a 10% discount at the Garden Gift Shop and Café, discounts to garden events, and a 10% discount at the Oregon Garden Resort's Moonstone Spa.
The Oregon Garden gives horticulture habitués the opportunity to fully discover the floral kingdom, with more than 20 specialty gardens. The grounds brim with horticulture rarities and aesthetic scenery, such as a sprawling, 400-year-old Signature Oak and an alluring collection of miniature conifers. Take your pup or bow-tie-wearing praying mantis to the Pet Friendly Garden, or admire the view of the Willamette Valley at the Axis Fountain. Those with deciduous-deducing children can take in the Children's Garden, which features dinosaur-bone digs and a Hobbit house. Revel in the stately rose garden, meditate in the therapeutic sensory garden, or simply smell nature's aromatic deodorant while wandering around Oregon Garden.

- A dozen horticultural theme gardens showcase indigenous and introduced plants alike, ranging from kitchen herbs to an extensive collection of North American conifers. – Fodor's
- My personal favorite was a small pond with lily pads that has lots of frogs. It was so neat to be able to look at the frogs so closely. Their kids area is great, especially on the weekends. – Jennifer C., Insider Pages

About The Oregon Garden
The Oregon Garden gives horticulture habitués the opportunity to fully discover the floral kingdom with more than 20 specialty gardens. The grounds bloom with horticultural rarities and aesthetic scenery, such as a sprawling, 400-year-old signature oak and an alluring collection of miniature conifers. In the Pet Friendly Garden, pups frolic around nontoxic plants, and in the Children's Garden youngsters can explore features such as dinosaur-bone digs and a real hobbit house.
The garden's retail nursery furnishes a crib and changing table for baby plants and also cultivates vegetation all year round, selling perennials, shrubs, annuals, and veggies. Although not part of The Oregon Garden, the historic Gordon House, the only Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building in the state and the only one open to the public throughout the Pacific Northwest is located next door.
