At the Portland Chapter of the ARS, we invite you to enjoy the wide variety of rhododendrons and companion plants in each of our two fine gardens - the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden and the
Cecil & Molly Smith Garden.

We also invite you to join us at one of our monthly meetings. There you can enjoy an informative gardening presentations, get advice from some of our country's most highly esteemed growers and propagators of rhododendron, obtain unusual plants for your garden, or just share time with other gardeners and rhododendron lovers.

If you are from the Portland area and enjoy growing rhododendrons, you've come to the right place. We are happy to share any knowledge we may have, just as we appreciate hearing the gardening experiences of others. Most of all, we enjoy rhododendrons and azaleas in our gardens.

Whether you choose to be our guest at a monthly meeting or prefer to attend one of our special events, the Portland Chapter of the ARS is ready to welcome you.

Please come and join us.
