The Ted and Mary Greig Rhododendron is an award winning Rhododendron garden in Stanley Park. It was originally located on Vancouver Island then moved to Stanley Park.
The garden is right next to a walking/bicycle path, but has it's own walking path that meanders through the garden. We recommend that you walk this path to get the full enjoyment of the garden!
The plaque says:
The Ted and Mary Greig Rhododendron Garden
Dedicated to Ted and Mary Greig, pioneers in Rhododendron culture in British Columbia. They were awarded a gold medal by the American Rhododendron Society in 1965. The Griegs established a nursery at Royston on Vancouver Island in 1935. Their Rhododendron collection was acquired by the Vancouver Parks Board in 1966. Some of the Greig hybrids in this garden are unique in that they combine fragrance with mid-summer bloom, both rare qualities in Rhododendrons.
This plaque dedicated June, 1989.
