Winter in theFour-Season GardenLinda DerkachKalmia latifolia (Mountain Laurel) bloomsfrom December to spring. The species iseasier to grow than the flashy hybrids.On a cold and bleak February morning, aglowing Hamamelis ‘Arnold Promise’ willsurprise and delight.Long-blooming Mahonia ‘Charity’ – bringsbeauty and fragrance to our gardens andfeeds the hummingbirds – reason alone toinclude this tough plant in your garden.Arbutus unedo ‘Compacta’ is a wonderfulsmall evergreen tree. Flowers and fruitfestoon in November as if anticipatingChristmas. Slow-growing, compact andattractive all year round, it is happy inthe ground or a large pot – sun or shade –and not messy like its larger cousinArbutus menziesii that graces our rockyshores and parkways.Qualicum Beach Seedy SaturdayFebruary 2, 2020Qualicum Beach Civic CentreMARS needs a few more volunteers to‘person’ our table, talk up the club, sell afew rhododendrons and SMILE Please sign up with Marilyn Dawson at ourJanuary meeting.Page 4
Greig Species Garden:Winter UpdateMarilyn DawsonWhile many were planning for the holidayslate last fall, a small group met at MilnerGardens and Woodland to assess the pastand make plans for the next step in theGreig Rhododendron Species Garden. TheSpecies Advisory Group is comprised ofmembers from all the ARS chapters onVancouver Island who have worked withour partners, Milner and Vancouver IslandUniversity, to create the species garden.(For newcomers, the species garden openedin April 2018 with about 150 plants in theground.)both members of the Species AdvisoryGroup, went down to Washington to selectthem. John said that most of the wish list iscomplete, although there are a fewoutstanding that are difficult to locate.To complement the Greig heritagecollection that dates back to the 1960s,there is also a need for a mature ‘LoderiKing George’ or ‘Loderi Venus’. Pleasenotify John or Marilyn Dawson if anyoneknows of one available.A bank of primula being added at the speciesgarden by one of our volunteers.Official Opening day – April 2018More rhododendrons and companionplants were added this year in several workbees, the most recent in late Novemberwhen 40 more hard-to-find rhododendronswere planted along with a dozencompanion plants and some bulbs. Anotherdozen, considered too immature forplanting, were sent to Victoria to grow on.(The work bees, by the way are open toanyone who wants to grovel in the dirt.Please see Marilyn Dawson if you areinterested.) These plants were acquiredfrom the Rhododendron SpeciesFoundation. John Deniseger and Paul Wurz,The group is now looking to the next phaseof the garden, an interpretative program,improved irrigation and long-termmaintenance, which might involve replacingplants as well as general all-round care.To that end Milner is setting up legacyprograms that target specific areas. TheShoots with Roots Program for children andthe Rhododendron Collection are twoexamples where donors can direct theirfunds on a regular basis or in their wills.With a legacy fund, the interest only will beused and the principle will keep on growing.Full details are available from MilnerGardens and Woodland.Page 5

Spectacular Beauty in a Pine WoodThe Hobbie Rhododendron ParkLinswege, GermanyWords and Photos: Linda DerkachIf you have the spectacular Rhododendron ‘Scarlet Wonder’ or R.‘Baden Baden’ flourishing in your garden, you have a connection tohybridizer Dietrich Hobbie whose garden and nursery we visited duringthe 2018 ARS Convention in Bremen, Germany. During his 86 years,Hobbie created roughly 100 rhododendron hybrids. He lived his wholelife on his farm in his beloved pine woods in northern Germany nearWesterstede. Born in 1899, Hobbie was 29 before his passion forrhododendrons, hybridizing and breeding emerged, eventually becominghis lifelong work. Some years later he was influenced by some ofEngland’s famous gardens, including Exbury Gardens and theRothschilds.At 160 acres, the Hobbie Rhododendron Park is the largest in Germanywhere Rhododendron is King – or so it seems. In fact, as we set out toview some of the most beautiful and very old cultivars, we were warnedto stay with the group and not to wander off down unmarked yetinviting grassy trails into the woods. Two or three hours was not nearlyenough time to do justice to such an extensive collection ofmagnificent shrubs. Lack of adequate time and plant labels made itnearly impossible to identify most of the luscious blooms. To this day,species from China, Burma, India, Europe and North America are foundin Hobbie’s huge collection.The lack of nomenclature was not a drawback to our enjoyment of theamazing blooms, the sheer number of cultivars and many breathtakingcombinations. Wild yet classy, this garden would be on my list to visitonce more if I were to travel Europe again.Page 7
This combination of rhododendrons almost as high as the housegreeted us as we arrived at the Hobbie Rhododendron Park.
The park is a place of enjoyment and relaxation.
We encountered Rhododendron luteum in many public gardens throughout Germany,Sweden and Denmark. The heady fragrance of this fluoriferous deciduous azaleaheightened our enjoyment of the gardens.Page 10
Rhododendron ‘Love Song’was growing in several placesalong the pine wood trails.Note the luscious, dark green, healthy and weevil-free leaves!!The rhododendrons here were blooming amazingly welldespite there being many trees providing shade.Page 11
Huge old rhododendrons underplanted with smaller varieties.
This part of the rhododendron park featured very old specimens, not unlike theold shrubs bordering sweeping lawns uncovered in theLost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, England.
