Field Exploration: Azaleas & Rhododendrons

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Holden Forests and Gardens’ David G. Leach Research Station is a hidden gem just south of Lake Erie in Madison, Ohio. Founded by the late David Leach in 1970, the station has focused on the development of new rhododendrons and other landscape plants for cold places. Recently, the station has also started a rhododendron conservation program, focused especially on North American native rhododendrons and azaleas. With several thousand rhododendrons and countless other unique plants, the station is a botanical wonderland and a growing resource for the region. Join us for a private tour of the site with Rhododendron Collections Manager Connor Ryan.

Advanced registration is required.
