(Koster & Sons Hybrid Rhododendron)

M. Koster & Sons of Boskoop, Holland, developed a number of rhododendron hybrids in the early twentieth century that are still widely planted today. Their wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers are borne in large rounded trusses in spring. The red, pink, purple, or white blooms often have a contrasting blotch on their upper lobes. The upright rounded plants have large leathery leaves that are often glossy dark green. Among the best-known of these hybrids are the two red-flowered cultivars 'America' and...

(Kurume Hybrid Azalea)

Compact, evergreen azaleas offering an abundance of brightly colored spring blooms, the Kurume Hybrids result from some 300 years of hybridizing in Japan. Their ancestry likely includes Rhododendron kaempferi, R. kiusianum, and other Japanese species and hybrids. This group includes hundreds of cultivars, only a fraction of which are commonly available. They were introduced to the West in 1920 by renowned plantsman E.H. Wilson.

These popular evergreen shrubs are...

(Larson Hybrid Rhododendron, Rhododendron)

H. L. Larson of Tacoma, Washington, developed numerous rhododendron hybrids that are well adapted to the coastal Northwest United States as well as to other areas with relatively mild summers and winters. Most are compact, and many have the beautiful R. degronianum var. yakushimanum in their ancestry. They bear wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers in large rounded trusses in spring. The red, orange, yellow, pink, purple, or white blooms often have a contrasting blotch on...

(Linwood Hardy Rhododendron)

This diverse group of dwarf evergreen azaleas was developed by G. Albert Reed and Dr. Charles Fischer, Jr., of Linwood, New Jersey. Intended for both greenhouse and garden use, Linwood azaleas include Kurume, Kaempferi, and other hybrid groups in their lineage. Their broadly funnel-shaped blooms are red, orange, yellow, purple, pink, or white, often with a contrasting blotch. Most are double or semi-double and hose-in-hose (with "stacked" whorls of petals). The dense, typically dwarf plants have...

(Mayo Hybrid Rhododendron)

Developed by R. P. Mayo of Augusta, Georgia, these evergreen azaleas are the result of crosses between Kurume hybrids and varieties and hybrids of the Japanese natives Rhododendron indicum and R. kaempferi. They bear clusters of funnel-shaped red, pink, orange, purple, or white flowers on dense upright medium-sized to tall plants in spring. The funnel-shaped, often ruffled flowers are single or hose-in-hose (with two superimposed sets of petals).

These somewhat cold-tender...

(Mehlquist Hybrid Rhododendron)

Renowned for their exceptional cold hardiness, their dense compact habit, and their showy, often early-season flowers, these hybrids were developed by Gustav Mehlquist of the University of Connecticut. Many have the beautiful R. degronianum var. yakushimanum in their ancestry. Mehlquist Hybrids bear wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers in large rounded trusses in spring. The red, pink, purple, or white flowers often have a contrasting blotch on their upper lobes. These dense...

(Mezitt Hybrid Rhododendron)

Developers of the renowned PJM Hybrids, Peter J. Mezitt and his son Edmund V. Mezitt of Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, also introduced other valuable small-leaved rhododendrons for gardeners in cold climes. Prized for their early bloom, compactness, exceptional cold-hardiness, and handsome evergreen leaves, these dense upright shrubs bear showy clusters of pink, purple, or white flowers in early spring. The glossy dark green leaves turn bronzy-purple in cold weather and are fragrant...

(Evergreen Azalea, Martha Hitchcock Azalea, Morrison Hybrid Azalea)

Originator of most of the Glenn Dale Hybrids, B. Y. Morrison continued developing evergreen azalea hybrids following his retirement from the United States Department of Agriculture and his subsequent move from Maryland to Pass Christian, Mississippi. There he bred and selected numerous cultivars that exhibited exceptional ornamental characteristics and heat tolerance. Known as the Back Acres Hybrids, these cultivars bear funnel-shaped single, double, or semi-double flowers in a wide spectrum of colors....

(Bristow Hybrid Evergreen Azalea)

Developed for greenhouse forcing by Owen R. Bristow of San Bernadino, California, and introduced by Mossholder Nursery of Costa Mesa, California, these evergreen azaleas result from crosses among Belgian Indica, Rutherford, and other hybrid azaleas. Also known as the Gold Cup Azaleas, they bear showy clusters of large pink, red, or white flowers from later winter into early spring. They may bloom from late fall to spring in frost-free areas. The flaring, funnel-shaped single or semi-double flowers...

(Mucronatum Azalea)

The Mucronatum group comprises hybrids of Rhododendron 'Murcronatum', a white-flowered azalea of obscure origin from Japan. They are slow-growing evergreen to semi-evergreen shrubs with upright branches and hairy oval leaves. A well known member of this group is 'Delaware Valley White', which is often planted to bring light to shady areas of the garden. These azaleas prefer medium sun to shade and well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil. They are versatile in the landscape, doing and looking well in...
