Over 123 varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas grace this knoll. Many of these rhododendrons were bred to be suited for cold winters. When these flowers are in bloom, Comstock Knoll is full of a sea of colors. If you are lucky enough to be here during this season from May to mid June, be sure to get lots of pictures of these beautiful flowers!
