Wells Medina Nursery purchased a private collection of unique species and hybrid rhododendron plants and will debut them on Saturday, March 17 at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, educational programs and guest appearances to be determined. The 166 piece collection includes one-of-a-kind plants created by renowned King County horticulturists Jim Barlup, Frank Fujioka, Ned Brockerbaugh and others.
The rare specimens came from a large private collection offered exclusively to Wells Medina. The nursery purchased the entire offering, allowing the public to buy these plants for the first and – in certain cases – only time. This purchase is the culmination of a decades-long relationship between family-owned business involving many of Washington and Oregon’s premier rhododendron buyers, sellers and hybridizers.
This collection includes hybrid (human created) and species (naturally occurring) rhododendrons of unique shapes, sizes, colors and fragrances. The rare hybrids were bred to thrive in the Pacific Northwest and, with proper care, are not only a great showpiece, but a chance to own and grow unique cultivar cousins of Washington’s state flower.
