Fridays from April 26th through June 7th, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Beginning in April, enjoy a self-guided stroll through the splendor of several thousand rhododendrons, azaleas, and other beautiful blooms at the David G. Leach Research Station, located in Madison, OH.

Sandy soils and a lake-moderated climate make the research station one of the best places for rhododendron cultivation in the Midwest. The station has nearly 12 acres of display areas and more than 2 acres of field growing space. The display areas are arranged as strolling gardens where more than 1400 rhododendrons are being evaluated and preserved long term. Recently, the station has taken on a wild germplasm conservation role, and more and more wild-occurring rhododendron species are being added to the display areas. The fields are used for evaluating temporary breeding populations of several thousand unique seedlings or for other field research.

Terrain: up to 1.0 mile, natural surface, mostly flat, potential mud. 

Address: 1890 Hubbard Rd, Madison, OH 44057 (view address on Google Maps)
