INFO: The Mother’s Day Rhododendron Show and Plant Sale are held on Mother’s Day weekend when the rhododendrons and azaleas in the garden are at the peak of their glorious color. This is a judged showing with awards offered by the Portland Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society. The plant sale includes an exceptional selection of plants as well as books and free plant care advice.
Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is a unique seven-acre garden containing an
out-standing collection of rare species and hybrid rhododendrons, azaleas, and other
lesser known ericaceous plants, as well as many companion plants and unusual trees.
This internationally recognized garden is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year but is spectacular April through May when the azaleas and rhododendrons are in full bloom. A spring-fed lake surrounds much of the garden, attracting countless waterfowl which nest and feed in this natural habitat.
AMENITIES: Disabled access restroom.
