awards were stunning to look at.
There were a surprisingly lot of exhibits to choose from (nearly 600) and a lot of tough decisions!
|Rhododendron 'Mi Amor' is
a cross between lindleyi and nuttallii. It will grow to
about 6-feet in 10-15 years and sports an open growth
habit. The leaves are dark green on top, and grey-green
The huge fragrant flowers may be nearly 6-inches wide, bell-shaped, white with yellow throat, and set in trusses of about five flowers each.

|Plant sales help support
educational efforts of the chapter. It is a bit of a
'tricky' process to figure out what might be blooming
and sell easily, and those that might not. Typically we
bring in well over a hundred different plants and price
them with a margin just over wholesale costs.
||Trophy judging can be tough, sometimes a small grooming error can make the difference between exceptional exhibits and trophy winners!|
