Rhododendron Festival at Benmore

April 1st, 2017 - May 31st, 2017

In its mountainside setting, Benmore offers spectacular displays of rhododendrons - 3,000 plants from 300 species arranged in botanical and geographical groupings. Rhododendrons are part of Benmore’s history. In the early 20th century, plant collectors such as George Forrest, Ernest Wilson and Joseph Rock brought back hundreds of new plants to Britain, including many new species of rhododendron. In the 1920s and 1930s, hundreds of rhododendrons were grown in the Edinburgh Nursery and then transferred to the wild wet mountainside in Argyll. Head to Benmore to see the spectacular garden.
