For the best display of spring blooms plan an April trip to Lendonwood Gardens in Grove, Oklahoma. Lendonwood houses one of the largest collections of azaleas and rhododendrons in the region with over 250 species. The garden is designed with a rich Asian influence and contains numerous features typical of Japanese gardens. The Japanese Pavilion pictured above provides a serene space for relaxation and contemplation. The pavilion overlooks a large koi pond and surrounding gardens.
