PRLog - Apr. 15, 2010 - MISSISSAUGA, Canada -- Mississauga, Ontario -  Rhododendron fanciers, gardeners, photographers, artists and random fresh air fiends of all ages are hereby invited to a free, once-a-year tour of the City of Mississauga Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens in Port Credit, Ontario, Canada, on Sunday, May 30, 2010 from 2:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.

Gardens' Stewardship Committee members Daphne Van Ginkel, who is an executive member of the Ontario Horticultural Society, and Para Kanp, BRG Head Gardener, will lead the tour of Mississauga's 'Gardens on the Lake' at 660 Lakeshore Road West, Mississauga, Ontario.

"Rhododendrons are coming into bloom now, and, over the coming weeks, look for a colourful display from the azaleas and Japanese cherry trees," Kanp says. "When it comes to rhodos and when they bloom, it all depends on the weather. When the temperature goes up, blooming speeds up. When the temperature goes down, blooming slows down. But for the Gardens Tour, there will be lots of plants in bloom." The Garden Tour lasts about 3 hours, Kanp says, "And I spend a lot of the time answering questions."

Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens Stewardship Committee chair, David Culham, says, "Make a note of the date, invite your friends to come along, and bring your cameras. This tour is a great opportunity to chat with a master gardener, meet new people, and enjoy one of the finest gardens in the area."

The Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens Stewardship Committee (BRGSC) provides volunteers and community input to this City of Mississauga gardens.

Rhododendrons are evergreen shrubs that flower in Spring with large blooms of mauve, red, yellow, white or pink, depending on variety. The Gardens' acid soil and micro climate on the north shore of Lake Ontario in Port Credit are ideal for rhododendrons.
