2022 MARS Annual Rhododendron Show & Sale
Enjoy free admission to the MARS Rhododendron Show and plant sale, featuring the flowers of early to mid-season blooming rhododendron species, along with local vendors selling gardening goodies and a variety of plants (not only rhododendrons).
This is your chance to consult the experts and purchase from a top-quality selection of rhododendrons and azaleas, from iron-clad garden standbys to rare and unusual varieties.
Whether you’re a rhododendron aficionado, a gardener, or simply a fan of flowers, you’ll find lots to enjoy at the MARS Rhododendron Show and Plant Sale.
Rhododendron Society members and the public are invited to show their favourite rhododendron blooms (known as trusses). Please see “How to Exhibit” below.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll be able to have a full show and sale, but this may change depending on the COVID restrictions. Please check back here for updates!
