Federal Way is home to one of the largest and finest collections of Rhododendron species in the world. Over 10,000 rhododendrons grow in a beautiful woodland setting covering 22 acres. The garden displays over 700 species native to four continents.
The Rhododendron Species Foundation & Botanical Garden is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to the conservation, public display, and distribution of Rhododendron species. Conservation has come to be of primary importance in recent years with the destruction of Rhododendron habitat in many areas of the world. The Foundation provides education relating to these beautiful plants and serves as a unique resource for scientific, horticultural, and general gardening communities worldwide.
