About Us

Who We Are

The Niagara Region, together with the Atlantic Region (Atlantic Rhododendron & Horticultural Society) make up the Rhododendron Society of Eastern Canada; both are affiliated as Chapters with the American Rhododendron Society (ARS) and comprise District 12 of the ARS.

This web site describes activities of a group of enthusiasts who grow Azaleas and Rhododendrons in the golden horseshoe of southern Ontario. Our membership includes growers and hybridizers in various Canadian regions and abroad. Periodic meetings allow members: (a) to share experiences in growing rhododendrons and azaleas, (b) opportunities to have questions answered, (c) to receive current information on principles and practices related to the genus Rhododendron, and (d) to hear speakers who address a variety of specialized issues. Our Chapter makes available a large selection of not readily available hardy rhododendrons, azaleas and companion plants at special member prices. An annual seed and cutting exchange allows members to experiment with new varieties and to acquire otherwise difficult to obtain species and varieties. We also provide reliable advice on how to grow rhododendrons and azaleas under your unique conditions.
