    I looked around for a while and was unable to find any forms regarding rhododendrons, maybe i am blind but i figured id start one! the pacific northwest is a great location for raising rhododendrons.

    throw up your pics/comments/questions of anything rhododendron related. looking forward to seeing how this thread unfolds, maybe we can get a rhododendron section if there is enough interest!

    photos i posted are of......

    R. roxieanum var oreonastes
    Rose vallon (love this new addition)
    my failed rhododendron propagation attempt, next year will be better.....
    dont know the name of the last rhododendron any ideas???
    R. pachysanthum
    ring of fire

    Yes, I have over 350, 28 identified species & 68 identified hybrids. Our garden is well established, planted in the early 80's so some are tree form.
