Hello all. I am currently researching an article about the threat of development and local initiatives surrounding the heritage Rhodos planted in Abbotsford by Dr. Jim McKee in the early 1900s. I am looking for any information on the following... -Was he the first to plant rhodos in the Fraser Valley? An article I have found (circa 1978) states that Dr. McKee gave the largest of his rhodo plants to Dr. Ethelyn Trapp of Vancouver for her garden which has become Kleenwyck Park on the west side of the Capilano River. -Are these Rhodos still protected in this park? What variety are they? Have they been catalogued? Unfortunately McKee did not catalogue or keep a record of his planting and I am also looking for any information on the varieties planted on the corner of Whatcom and 'McKee' (the very large tree-sized Rhodos that are threatened by development) I am writing this article for a local newsletter which focusses on historical, cultural and environmentally significant sites in the Abbotsford area. I am not a botanist, and welcome any information on the McKee Rhodos. Any and all information is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
