Chimacum Woods and other fine growers will be at the
Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st
St. Seattle) on Friday, March 7, from 9 to 3. Proceeds benefit the
Elisabeth C. Miller Library at the CUH. We are excited to be bringing some
rhododendrons which are eager for Spring to come! Among them will be R.
magniflorum (eventual large white flowers), R. glanduliferum (fragrant,
white, late bloomer), R. ochraceum (frosty foliage and bright red flowers),
the lovely R. campanulatum “blue ox” with its bluish foliage and diminutive
form, and other great favorites.
Chimacum Woods welcomes you to visit
the nursery and gardens. We enjoy meeting people who are looking for
beautiful, healthy and unusual rhododendrons. We like to talk about the
value of helping preserve the gene pool of plants which are endangered
because of slash-and-burn agriculture and road-building in their native
lands. We like walking the garden to help you see what "your" new rhody
might look in a woodland setting five to forty years from now. We like
helping landscape artists acquire mature plants for shows and gardens.
Visits from gardeners, clubs and other interested groups always welcome.
Come visit us. Please call 206-383-2713 first to set up a
