Fodor's Expert Review Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

Southeast Garden/Arboretum

For much of the year, this 7-acre retreat near Reed College is frequented mainly by bird-watchers and those who want a restful stroll. But starting in April, thousands of rhododendron bushes and azaleas burst into flower, attracting visitors in larger numbers. The peak blooming season for these woody shrubs is May; by late June the show is over.
