Specialty Interest

For Information Contact:Chris Hodgson
Phone:(604) 541-2382
Meeting time and location:

We meet at VanDusen Botanical Garden on the 3rd Thursday of the month except June, July, August and December. In May we meet for a walk at a botanical garden, often VanDusen.

Organization's Profile:

Our meetings include a presentation of local shrubs of seasonal interest, usually in bloom and illustrated lectures featuring notable speakers on interesting topics not limited to rhododendrons. At most meetings one of our several grower-members offers plants for sale at preferred prices. In May, rather than a meeting indoors we tour a local botanical garden usually UBC or VanDusen. During the social part of the meeting you will experience contact and fellowship with fellow gardeners at all levels of expertise, interested in both rhododendrons and companion plants. The Society maintains an extensive library on site and during our meetings you are free to browse or borrow from it.

Special Events:

May Show and Plant sale at Park & Tilford Gardens in North Vancouver. Open members gardens to other Society members.
