May 2017 - Toronto ON


We took a drive to see the rhododendrons in flower this month.


In 2008, Rhododendron Garden in Mississauga Ontario Canada was renamed Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens to honour a long time Mississauga resident and master rhododendron hybridizer, the late Dr. Joseph Brueckner.

.

Many of Dr Brueckner's beloved rhodos were donated to, and live on, in these gardens, a City of Mississauga park.

Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens' 18 acres (7.19 hectare) site is bounded on three sides by Lakeshore Road West, Godfrey's Lane and the north shore of Lake Ontario west of Toronto.

This Garden, formerly known as Cranberry Cove, enjoys a micro climate favourable to growing rhododendrons, azaleas, and other species of trees native to a Carolinian forest such as various types of beech trees and Kentucky coffeetrees.

  1. Lovely and quite a legacy. My father would know the area well- he and my mother lived on Godfrey's Lane when they were first married.

  3. Such a lot of beauty in all varieties! We know the name of A.M. Brueckner too and I have two Rododendrons and two Japaneses Azalee here in my garden, one is in bloom, like at photo #4.
    Happy Epiphany, thanks for joining
