Dennis Bottemiller is the Nursery Manager and Propagator for the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden in Federal Way, Washington, which is home to the largest collection of species rhododendrons in North America. The garden is presented in a beautiful naturalistic display setting and is also a unique resource for botanic and horticultural research institutions worldwide. Over the past few decades the variety of companion plantings has grown markedly and now includes many unusual and interesting plants including the Giant Himalayan Lily, the extraordinary blue Himalayan Poppy, Paeonia mairei, Arisaema taiwanese, and a variety of hardy ferns in the stumpery. Of course, there are also larger plants like the many Japanese maples, stewartia, magnolias, and the interesting Rehderodendron macrocarpum. The public is invited and welcomed at no charge.
