Welcome from Ann Mangels - ARS President:

On behalf of the thousands of rhododendron enthusiasts worldwide "welcome to our web site." Here you will find valuable resources which enable you to learn more about the selection and care of rhododendrons. We hope this will encourage you to explore all that the genus Rhododendron (which includes azaleas) has to offer, and you will include these wonderful plants in your garden.
