[Translate to English:] RHODO – Europe’s Biggest Rhododendron Exhibition
Blossoms and flowers in the heart of the town
Who visits Westerstede in the merry month of May, experiences a flowering miracle every four years. The RHODO, Europe’s biggest rhododendron exhibition, transforms the town centre in into a colourful sea of blossoms. A moving natural spectacle in the midst of the Ammerland, the green garden and park landscape in the northwest of Lower Saxony: because all types of the region are in bloom here exceptionally for ten days at the same time. The Ammerland is well known for its rhododendron blossom and its fertile soils. Nowhere else rhododendrons and azaleas are blooming so beautifully than here from the end of April until the middle of June and so many tree nursery brands and professional plant growers are located. Approximately 85 per cent of the rhododendrons and azaleas on the German market originate from our Ammerland. Besides the natural beauties which you can marvel at on the RHODO in Westerstede, the experience exhibition “Healthy Lifestyle and Green Living” inspires. An event for the head, the heart and the senses: for adults and children, professional plant growers and garden lovers, active persons and excursionists.
