Rhododendron

"Gene Paschall, a member of the Midwest Chapter, is featured in the March 2009 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. This is a must see article, with gorgeous pictures of his garden. A former research chemist, he wanted to find a growing mix specially tailored for rhododendrons: sand, topsoil, and mulch. For decades he has developed one of the most beautiful rhododendron gardens in the Northern Illinois area." (Quoted from Rhododendron and Azalea News by the American Rhododendron Society)

How blessed we are to have him as our 'resident gardener.'
