Bloom Blast! April 14, 2010

If you haven’t been by lately for a walk in the Gardens, you are missing out! The Tender Species Rhododendrons are in full bloom and their beautiful fragrance is filling the air throughout the Gardens.


Rhododendron 'Else Frye'

Rhododendron ‘Else Frye’ is a splendid fragrant hybrid. The 4 inch blossoms are white, kissed with a flush of pink and becoming sunburst yellow in the throat. The leathery, glossy foliage is deeply veined. This beautiful shrub is blooming now just west of the Heath and Heather Garden. Stop by for a whiff!
