On Saturday, November 10, 2018, from 10 AM to noon, at the San Lorenzo Garden Center, 235 River Street, Santa Cruz, the Monterey Bay Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society will feature a Cutting Workshop on growing rhododendrons from cuttings. In the program, you will be able to create plants from cuttings which you can take home, which should be blooming in three to five years. During the program, Mike McCullough will be showing how to create plants from cuttings and will provide cutting material mainly of Maddenii Series and Vireya Series rhododendrons which are rhododendrons that are superb for our area but are unfortunately not provided by nurseries like they should. Many maddenii and vireya hybrids, which are in the nursery trade, were created in California.

Maddenies and vireyas are ideal for our climate, make good container plants, and many have fragrant flowers.
