Breckenridge Alpine Garden

The Breckenridge Alpine Garden has been maintained by the Summit County Garden Club since it began. Located along the Blue River in downtown Breckenridge it displays beautiful mountain plants and flowers such as the Rocky Mountain columbine, lupine, penstemon and gaillardia as well as a variety of sedum, poppies and geums.

 

Bloom Host

The garden club's Bloom Host program affords members the opportunity to visit SCGC member gardens for the exchange of ideas and sharing of mountain gardening tips.

 

Hikes

 

SCGC organizes several hikes and tours each summer. Popular activities include wildflower hikes at local venues such as Cataract Lake or Shrine Ridge, and organized tours to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail and the Denver Botanical Garden.
