Registration

Rhododendron Registration by Don Voss & Don Hyatt

Utilizing the expertise of noted taxonomist, Donald H. Voss, this PowerPoint presentation tries to illustrate the process one must go through to properly register an azalea or rhododendron. It illustrates many topics including flower, truss, and leaf types, as well as detailed examples on color evaluation. This presentation originated as a draft article by Don Voss.  Don Hyatt suggested creating a PowerPoint presentation to be made available to rhododendron and azalea growers considering the naming of their cultivars. 

It has lots of images to illustrate various concepts, and can be viewed as a full presentation suitable for a chapter program, or in smaller units that is easier for individual study. Below are the full PowerPoint* version, the four-part PowerPoint* version, a PDF** version and an Internet version that can be viewed in any browser.

When used as a program, the authors request any honorarium be donated to the ARS. When used for personal use, a small donation of $3-5 to the ARS would be appreciated.

Don illustrates many basic concepts including the relationship between shutter speed, lens opening and depth of field. He also discusses some elements of image composition as they relate to flower and landscape photography.

It has lots of images to illustrate various concepts, and can be viewed as a full presentation suitable for a chapter program, or in smaller units that is easier for individual study.

Rhododendron & Azalea Basics

Rhododendron And Azalea Basics by Steve Henning

Steve was asked to do a program for the Kutztown Garden Club. He was a little embarassed that after creating and maintaining Henning's Rhododendron and Azalea Pages, that he didn't have a general program for groups with a wide range of interests like Garden Clubs. This is the result of his effort to create a 1 hour program that covers Rhododendrons and Azaleas from A to Z.

When used as a program, the author requests any honorarium be donated to the ARS. When used for personal use, a small donation of $3-5 to the ARS would be appreciated.


A handout for this program is Rhododendron And Azalea Basics Handout.pdf.
