NRS Truss Show Clases

Nanaimo Rhododendron Society (NRS) – Truss Show Classes

Our annual Rhododendron Truss Show and Plant Sale is held in Late April/May every year. The Truss Show part of the event is a great way to show people the wide variety of colours, textures and sizes of rhododendrons available in our local area. Each Show Entry is entered to and judged against a specific class.   The list of allowed classes for the NRS Truss show is below.

The Novice class entries will be from those who have never entered a Rhododendron Truss Show before in this or any other club and can be from any of the other 15 classes listed below.
