The Festival of Rhododendrons

The third Scottish Festival of Rhododendrons is now being planned by the Glorious Gardens of Argyll and Bute and lots of other gardens belonging to the Discover Scottish Gardens group.

Visit our special gardens between 1st April and 31st May 2017 to see exhibitions, crafts, talks, take part in guided walks and demonstrations.

Whatever gardens you visit in Argyll and Bute there will be lots of spring flowers to enjoy – bulbs, trilliums, paeonias, cherries, magnolias and especially rhododendrons – and something for everyone during the Festival of Rhododendrons.

The events for the next Festival are currently being listed.
