ARS Celebrates its 75th Anniversary

The American Rhododendron Society celebrates its 75th Anniversary with a return to the Portland area, where the Society began in 1945, to present a group of world-renowned keynote speakers and tours to the Northwest’s outstanding gardens and nurseries. Informative guest speakers include Jens Nielsen, Kenneth Cox, Lionel de Rothschild and Steve Hootman. Outstanding garden tours are planned to the Crystal Springs Garden, the Cecil and Molly Smith Garden and the Lan Su Chinese Garden. The 2020 Convention will also feature a plant sale, photo exhibit/contest, and rhododendron science poster session.
