Join Olivia Kirkpatrick to explore the Wister Rhododendron Garden at Tyler Arboretum, one of the largest collections of hardy elepidote rhododendron in North America. The presentation will take us from the creation of the garden in 1961 by Tyler’s first director, Dr. John Wister, to the present. Olivia will discuss the progress of the garden in her first two years, as well as some of the plans and hopes for the future.
