Back again this year are Canterbury Bells. The fair will also feature hybridized irises from the garden of the late Lorraine Croswell. Other perennial plants for sale at the fair will include peonies, calla lilies, strawberries, raspberries, hellebores, hosta lilies, lilac, small trees and more.

Funds from the sale will help the work of the Camas-Washougal Historical Society to preserve and make available historical information that tells the story of the history and development of the area.
