Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

May 27, 2011 1 comment

Thanks to a tip from a friend (thanks, Gaynelle) we visited the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden in Portland, OR.  Although it was rainy, the beauty of the garden in general, and the rhododendrons in particular, was spectacular. 

The more than 2,500 rhododendrons, azaleas, and companion plants in the garden have all been donated by volunteers and interested individuals, or purchased with specially donated funds. Beginning in early spring and continuing into summer, they provide a magnificent display of color, giving visitors the opportunity to view many varieties rarely seen in the Pacific Northwest.

Glad I took my camera.  Some pictures below, all pictures (and colors) are as photographed.  No artificial colors or Photoshop stuff here.
