Daylilies, hostas and wow at Langley’s Erikson’s Daylily Gardens

An open house highlighting a variety of plants and flowers is taking place over two days at 24642 51st Ave., this weekend.

It may be called the Erikson’s Daylily Gardens but the large property in central Langley is home to thousands of plants, including daylilies, lilies, hostas, unusual perennials, and specimen trees.

And this weekend, it will also be filled with people who enjoy the opportunity to see the Erikson property during the annual open house.

The Aldergrove Daylily Club has rounded up diverse prizes for its raffle from wineries, agritourism businesses, growers, restaurants and the Canadian Museum of Flight, among others.

Garden owner Pam Erikson shares her passion for plants with the public at this annual fundraiser. Her interests lie in hybridizing plants to create new and unique varieties.

Those heading to the open house can meet Erikson and other gardening experts.

People will want to take 248th Street to 50th Avenue to get onto 246th Street. The gardens at 24642 51st Ave.

These are private gardens, and are not wheelchair and walker accessible. The owners ask that people do not bring pets. Adults must keep their children with them at all times.

The open house will again have harp music 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. courtesy of Judy Henry, and exhibitors. The 15th annual open house runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 9 and 10. Admission is by donation with the funds earmarked for BC Children’s Hospital and some local charities.
