Submitted by the Event Organizer
On Sunday, April 3 at Noon, the Monterey Bay Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society will feature a tour of the Monte Toyon Garden of Maury and Fran Sumner, that is located at the Monte Toyon Camp and Conference Center, 220 Cloister Lane, Aptos.
From the parking lot, please walk uphill to the Observation Platform of Rhododendron Garden.
The tour will be led by Mike McCullough, who knew the Sumners from 1975 until they died.
The Sumners lived in San Francisco, but in order to test and display their hybrids such as the Maddenii Series rhododendrons My Lady, My Guy, Mi Amor, Saffron Prince, Martha Wright and Owen Pierce; and to grow other rhododendrons, in the 1950s they established the three acre Monte Toyon Rhododendron Garden in Aptos.
