Learn about the role Laurelwood’s founders, Dorothy and John Knipppenberg, played in hybridizing rhododendrons on the East Coast.
Rhododendrons are Laurelwood’s signature plant, and observing over 60 varieties of rhodies in bloom is one of the year’s most stunning sights. During our Rhododendron Festival, guests and their families will enjoy peaceful walks surrounded by majestic flowers. And they will learn more about Laurelwood’s legacy. Our rhododendron collection includes more than 400 named hybrids and species, many of which were raised and planted decades ago by John and Dorothy Knippenberg.
