Azalea Trail 2017

March 10 to 12, 2017
River Oaks Neighborhood and Bayou Bend Gardens

  • One of the surest signs of spring in Houston is the annual Azalea Trail. Houstonians and visitors view the spectacular gardens at Bayou Bend and Rienzi and visit River Oaks' exquisite private homes and admire their breathtaking gardens.
  • Azalea is the name given to the various spectacular flowering shrubs (genus Rhododendron) of the Heath family that are in full bloom each spring in Houston, Texas. These showy flowers flourish at seven Houston locations in varying shades of pink, purple, white, red and are a magnificent sight to behold.
  • In 1927, the River Oaks Garden Club was organized by 27 residents of the new River Oaks area. It was not until 1935 that they held the first Garden Pilgrimage as it was called then.
  • 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. all three days
