Garden Destinations: Wildflower Garden at the Face of Hubbard Glacier, Russell Fjord, Gulf of Alaska

Wildflower garden hubbard glacier alaska

There are not too many states that I haven’t been too, but Alaska is one of them. (sigh. someday)

This wildflower garden is across the water  from the face of Hubbard Glacier on the Russell Fjord in the Gulf of Alaska.   It is extraordinarily beautiful and simple,  and it reminds me of a big lesson in garden design….if you have a view, borrow it.  It’s not like your neighbors lawn mower, you don’t have to give it back.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Never have I seen a photo of a garden in Alaska. This certainly stretches my ideas about what would be possible there!
