Rhododendron Garden

We take you to a beautiful secret garden on Oregon’s central coast near Reedsport. Spruce Reach Island is the former estate of O. H. Hinsdale, who planted azaleas, camellias, and rhododendrons on the five acre site, now owned by the BLM. After nearly half a century, there’s a good chance the public may finally be able to go there.
