 What’s New & Happening ____________

Initial planning has begun for a Memorial Garden of Harold Greer’s hybrid rhododendrons at Hendricks Park.  The folks involved are trying to locate cuttings or small specimens of each of his hybrids, but there are a few that haven’t yet been located. The plants that are missing are: R. ‘Eugene’, R. Everything Nice’ and R. ‘Perfectly Pink’.  If you possess one or more of these plants, or if you know where one could be found for taking a cutting, please contact Gordon Wylie thru                                  _____
