Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens

Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens

Experience one of Canada's largest and publicly owned collections of rhododendrons. Situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario, the unique lake climate and white pines of the Garden nourish and shelter the rhododendrons which were generously donated by the late Dr. Joseph Brueckner.

Dr. Brueckner was an acknowledged expert on rhododendrons and a recognized hybridizer. His hybrids are still in propagation and are valued plants in North America and several European countries as well as England's famous Exbury Gardens. When Dr. Brueckner donated over 800 azaleas and rhododendrons from his private collection, he included the species and cultivars that form a rare collection in the Garden.

The woodland garden setting has been designed to highlight the beauty of the rhododendron/azalea display, and to integrate companion perennials and shrubs in order to provide a four-season garden presence. You can visit the Garden at any time of the year particularly from early May to the end of June to experience the spectacular floral display.
