The 2023 Rhododendron Weekend

Rhododendron

Rhododendrons are Laurelwood’s signature
plant and observing nearly 100 varieties of
rhodies in bloom is one of the year’s most
stunning sights. During our Rhododendron
Weekend, guests and their families will
enjoy peaceful walks surrounded by
majestic flowers. And they will learn more
about Laurelwood’s legacy. Our
rhododendron collection includes more than
400 named hybrids and species, many of
which were raised and planted decades ago
by John and Dorothy Knippenberg.

♦Rhododendron Collection Walking Tours
