Hardy Hybrid Rhododendrons






GHENT AZALEAS, as generally known, from having been raised in Belgium,

are a race of hybrids that have been produced by crossing the Asiatic R.

pontica with the various American species noted above, but particularly

R. calendulaceum, R. nudiflorum, and R. viscosum, and these latter with

one another. These have produced hybrids of almost indescribable beauty,

the flowers of which range in colour from crimson and pink, through

orange and yellow, to almost white.



Within the last few years quite an interesting race of Rhododendrons has

been brought out, with double or hose-in-hose flowers, and very

appropriately termed the Narcissiflora group. They include fully a dozen

highly ornamental kinds, with flowers of varying shades of colour.

varieties:--
