Rhododendron Sale to Benefit Student Scholarships

The Princeton Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society will be holding its annual sale of rare and unusual rhododendrons at Mercer County Community College on Saturday, April 29, 2006, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., rain or shine. A free azalea will be given to the first fifty buyers. The sale will feature hundreds of rhododendrons and azaleas, as well as companion plants in a wide variety of sizes. There will be a special "collector's corner" featuring young plants that are virtually unavailable from standard garden center sources. This will include both hybrids and species.

This Local chapter of rhododendron enthusiasts, a not-for-profit organization, uses the proceeds of this sale and other gardening events to underwrite scholarships at Mercer County Community College.

Interested gardeners are welcome to join the Princeton Chapter of ARS which meets once a month from September to May. Other events include a seed and pollen exchange, a hybridizers study group, spring garden tours, a cutting exchange, and a flower show which will be held on May 20, 2006 at the new Johnson Education Center, 1 Preservation Place, Princeton, New Jersey from noon to 5 p.m.

Further details can be obtained from sale chairmen: Ed Connors (732) 350-4454 anytime or Art Ryba (609)395-7219 during the evening. For those interested, the Princeton Chapter is also offering an advance order sale.
