I have been living in Seattle for almost six years and I admit, this was my first visit to the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden. The botanical garden features over 700 species of Rhododendron and many other fascinating plants as well. The garden encompasses 22 acres with a beautiful visitor center, gift shop, plant nursery, and trails for visitors to leisurely walk in the landscape.
With the recent cold and grey weather, we at Swansons thought it would be restorative to take a trip - albeit a virtual one - to the sunny climes of southern California. This is a peek at a visit to the renowned Lotusland gardens made by our Annuals and Indoor Plant Buyers, Liane and Mollie, this past August. We hope it leaves you feeling refreshed and even more ready for spring gardening!
