  1. SM28-1, SM28-2 and SM28-3 were found by Britt Smith and Frank Mossman on Stagecoach Hill, south of Orrick, CA. They were close together and are doubles, slightly different from one another. On each plant, only some of the flowers are double. The goal of the cross is to get a plant with a higher percentage of double flowers.
  2. SM30 is a Smith-Mossman find with a lot of yellow on each of the five petals. 2406 has a lot of pink and some yellow on all five petals. This cross has produced plants with a lot of yellow and pink on each of the five petals.
  3. SM189 XSM232 is a cross made by Dick Cavender. SM189 has large flowers for an occidentale and SM232 has very colorful frilly flowers. (SM189 X SM232)15 is a good selection from this cross. The aim of this cross is to produce flowers that look like the seed parent with lots of yellow in them.
  4. 502like is a picotee, but often has a wider picotee than does SM502, another picotee. This was found by Smith and Mossman on Stagecoach Hill. DD12 is called "Double Dig 12" and is another large plant on Stagecoach Hill. It has been determined to be a tetraploid by flow cytometry, but crosses readily with diploid azaleas. It does have thicker leaves than other occidentale azaleas.
  5. The goal of this cross is to have a double form of the cross (SM189 X SM232)15.
  6. TTYS is Tom Tatum Yellow Standard. It was found by Tom Tatum on Stagecoach Hill. It has a large standard petal nearly completely covered by yellow. There is also some yellow on the adjacent petals. This goal of this cross is to have more yellow on all five petals of the flower.
  7. The seed parent was a previous cross by Dick Cavender to get a larger flower with a lot of yellow. The goal of this cross is to create a large colorful flower with more yellow than that of the pollen parent.
  8. SM247 is Smith-Mossman plant with yellow on the top three petals. The goal of this second generation cross is to get more yellow on all five petals.

  1 Low growing, medium yellow
  2 This plant doesn't resemble its purported parentage, but looks more like what I would expect (makinoi x smirnowii) to look like. Regardless, it is a very good foliage plant and very floriferous.
  3 This plant has large, pure white flowers and light indumentum. It is a robust grower.
  4 degronianum used here is probably ssp. heptamerum. The seed parent has very large leaves, retained for many years.
  5 yakushimanum x wardii = cream colored
