Have a happy summer everyone. The first meeting in the Fall will be posted here as the schedule becomes available. In the mean time, enjoy those late blooming Rhododendrons. If you don't have any it's time you had some. My big white fragrant R.diaprepes is just blooming now as are several others including R. sanguineum dydimum (darkblack-red when in bud). Most late bloomers are species and can be sourced from propogaters that sell to club members.
Check in for updates over the summer - I'll post new non-Rhodo pictures as always. Here's a few current ones:
