The Plants for Members Committee tries to propagate choice rhododendron and
azalea varieties to be sold at reduced costs or at auction
to our members. Chapter members who
are interested in trying specific clones may request varieties online,
and the committee will try to locate cuttings to root or small plants
that can be grown on for the chapter. We encourage rhododendron
enthusiasts to review the wish list, to see if they might be able to spare
a cutting or two. Comments regarding culture or reliability of any of
these plants is also encouraged.
The committee will try to grow extra plants of reliable varieties for our
region, often referred to as our "
Good Doers", which will be sold to the general public
at our chapter plant sale.
For the 2006 Joint ARS/ASA Convention we hosted in Rockville, MD, we raised thousands of plants of new and
rare varieties. Don Hyatt created a CD with all of the plants as well as images. That is being hosted on
the Middle Atlantic Chapter ARS website:
