Pacific or Coast Rhododendron
The 35th Annual John Druecker Memorial Rhododendron Show and plant sale for the first time will be held at the beautiful Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, California on May 5, 6. The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens offers manicured formal gardens, a dense coastal pine forest, native flora and habitats, fern covered canyons with flower filled coastal bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This is the perfect backdrop for this exciting event.
This years theme is “Rhodies in Our Gardens”. This is a juried show and one of the largest on the west coast with over 700 entries entered annually. The show will include flower trusses, plants, bonsai, photos and floral arrangements of rhododendrons. The judging will take place immediately after and all winning entries will be rewarded with ribbons and trophies. The judges come from outside the area.
