These spectacular azalea gardens were created by Art and Betty White on the North River in Gloucester. In the dappled light of loblollies and dogwoods, the Whites have created a natural wonderland of hundreds of mature azaleas and rhododendrons in a riot of colors. Gentle paths lead to small ‘rooms’ inside the gardens where one can linger on benches to enjoy the splash of colors and individual blossoms. The Whites have generously opened their garden to friends each spring and have twice opened for HGW. Over the years they have delighted in using their garden as a teaching tool to pass on their special propagation techniques to a multitude of gardeners. Betty is a member of the Garden Club of Gloucester.
