Links to Rhododendron sites
The garden in Eugene, Oregon closed in 2015, but they have left behind extensive photo galleries, one for species rhododendrons and one for hybrids; the implication is that these were the last available plants. Clicking on Hybrids or Species under Rhododendrons on the home page takes you to pages arranged alphabetically where you can scroll through about 100 names and photos at a time. On the hybrids and species pages, there is a link to the Rhododendron Picture Gallery, where the galleries are also split by hybrid or species, arranged alphabetically, showing about 100 or so small photos on a page, so you can get an overview of very many at one time, which you can click on one-by-one.
