As with most gardens this one has a history. From the website:
In 2008, Rhododendron Garden in Mississauga Ontario Canada was renamed Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens to honour a long time Mississauga resident and master rhododendron hybridizer, the late Dr. Joseph Brueckner. This Garden, formerly known as Cranberry Cove, enjoys a micro climate favourable to growing rhododendrons, azaleas, and other species of trees native to a Carolinian forest such as various types of beech trees and Kentucky coffee trees.
Many of Dr Brueckner's beloved rhodos were donated to, and are grown, in these gardens.
While it turned out that my visit to the garden coincided with its best show for the year, the winters harshness was still quite visible. Many of the plants had brown leaves from winter burn or sun scald. The garden has a number of beds, some more formal than others. Rhododendrons and azaleas were accompanied by Pieris, Solomon's Seal, Bleeding Heart, and a variety of Hosta.
