sect. ss. Calyx well developed, up to almost 1⁄2 in. sect. Flower buds are pink in color, but when the flowers open, they are white. Inflorescence lax, with up to fifteen flowers. In Sleumer’s classification, this series, with s. Virgatum, constitutes the subgenus Pseudorhodorastrum, characterised by: inflorescences axillary; new growths from pseudoterminal buds or from buds below the flower-bearing part of the shoot. Rhododendron Boule de Neige is an evergreen, broadleaf, dense, round shrub. In splitting Rhododendron (as now understood), Linnaeus showed less taxonomic insight than his predecessor the French botanist Tournefort, whose genus Chamaerhododendros contained originally both the azalea R. indicum and the two lepidote rhododendrons R. ferrugineum and R. hirsutum (Institutiones Rei Herbariae (1700), p. 604), to which he added, after seeing them in the wild in Turkey, R. ponticum and the common yellow azalea R. luteum (Corollarium (1703), p. 42). Candidastrum Sleumer). In most of the hardier species the seeds are plain, i.e., without appendages. – This pest, believed to be a native of north-eastern North America, made its appearance in Britain at the beginning of this century. It is interesting that in both series there are anomalous species in W. Szechwan with glabrous ovaries (see R. galactinum and R. watsonii). Corolla funnel-shaped, tubular-funnel-shaped, or funnel-campanulate, rarely less than 2 in. It grows in an upright habit. ; Get your plants ready for the summer months by giving them a feed and a trim after flowering and apply Yates Waterwise Soil Wetter over the root area. The number of stamens is usually double that of the corolla-lobes, though often only approximately so when the latter are in excess of five. The book was a fine achievement and has probably been as much used by botanists as by gardeners. Seeds plain. Euazaleastrum Sleumer). long in some species. Dwarf evergreen shrubs, Leaves up to 11⁄2 in. 109-11). Argyrophyllum. R. ferrugineum is now taken as the type-species of the genus Rhododendron. Inflorescences with up to about five flowers, which are fragrant in some species; bud-scales numerous, often persistent. Rhododendrons with scales, which are mostly the small-leaved rhododendrons, belong to subgenus Rhododendron, while rhododendrons without scales, which are mostly the large-leaved rhododendrons, belong to the subgenus Hymenanthes. The other two are confined to the Himalaya. 1964, pp. This series consists of a single species (q.v. Rhododendron flowers are usually produced in trusses. They are green throughout the year and do not shed off their leaves like deciduous shrubs. The genus Rhododendron is divided into eight subgroups, or subgenera. 106-7, 130-3. Their root systems are shallow. These include the rhododendron alabamense, which translates to Alabama azalea, and rhododendron calendulaceum, meaning flame azalea. Rhododendrons are a diverse group of flowering plants. – The ten species in this subseries have flowers with a very small calyx, and the ovary is glabrous. The Augustinii and Yunnanense subseries are essentially Chinese in distribution, being absent from the Himalaya and rare west of the Salween; mainly they are thicket-forming shrubs of open places or light woodland at moderate elevations. If the conditions are ideal, they can live up to as long as 40 years. In both series there are species in which the petiole is very short and is winged on the upper side owing to the decurrence of the leaf-blade (R. basilicum in s. Falconeri and R. praestans, R. coryphaeum, and R. semnoides in s. Grande). Argyrophyllum. The interesting R. tamaense, at present unplaced, shows some kinship with the Cinnabarinum series but is also near to R. oreotrephes of the Triflorum series. Stamens ten, usually exserted. A series of some fourteen species, none common in cultivation, ranging from S. Szechwan through N.W. Pontica. Inflorescences with up to about fifteen often fragrant flowers. On the other hand, where conditions are suitable for their growth, they may form dwarf forests or thickets of vast extent. Eukaryotes contain a wide variety of organisms such as animals, fungi, and "protists." Corolla campanulate to funnel-shaped, 1 to 2 in. It happens that the azaleas of the Luteum subseries, of which Linnaeus knew three, have consistently five stamens; but R. indicum, also with five stamens, belongs to a group – the Obtusum subseries – in which the number is mostly between six and ten. Eleven species in N.W. Once the soil settles, fill the remaining half of the hole with soil. Their leaves have a rounded base and are usually 4.5 inches long in length. Stamens ten. – Calyx mostly small, frequently ciliate. In Sleumer’s classification it ranks as a subgenus. ss. The flower-buds and growth-buds are distinct, as is usual in the genus, but the uppermost axillary buds are subtended by leaves which have become partly modified into bud-scales (perulae). The species treated in Species of Rhododendron, and listed under s. Vaccinioides in the present Rhododendron Handbook (1967), belong, with one exception, to the subsection Pseudovireya (C. B. Gard. White Angel is a low maintenance plant. Dwarf evergreen shrubs. Rhod. They have dense, colorful hair on the lower side. In the century or so after the publication of Species Plantarum botanists either gave the genus Azalea half-hearted acceptance or transferred the known azaleas to Rhododendron. Campylocarpum) in its pink, campanulate corolla and short broad leaves. Evergreen azaleas belonging to subgenus Tsutsusi, and deciduous azaleas are classified in the subgenus Pentanthera. The ovary is consistently five-celled. They also have the widest ecological and geographical range. ss. The botanical name for this subseries is sect. Some species are founded on minor characters that probably fluctuate even in a local population. Yunnan. Polyploidy, rare elsewhere in the genus, is common among the lepidotes. Class - Dicotyledoneae Order - Ericales Family - Ericaceae Genus - Rhododendron Species - Rhododendron ponticum ©Design for unity . Corolla campanulate to funnel-shaped with a spreading limb, white (rarely), pink, purple, or red, usually spotted. Four species, the commonest being the variable R. tephropeplum. – Shrubs mostly of small size, sometimes prostrate; young stems and (more or less densely) the leaves, clad with erect or appressed hairs. Corolla funnel-shaped or funnel-campanulate, mostly 11⁄2 to 2 in. See R. leucaspis. – Deciduous erect shrubs. The edge of the shield may be entire, crenated, or sometimes (as in s. Anthopogon) deeply incised. Corolla tubular-campanulate and up to 2 in. 1. In Sleumer’s classification the lepidote rhododendrons are split into four subgenera. In addition to scales, the lepidote species also frequently bear eglandular hairs, but these are always simple; the branched hairs so frequent among the Hymenanthes rhododendrons are unknown among the lepidotes. Leiorhodium (Rehd.) Click below on a thumbnail map or name for species profiles. However, they retained it in its original form until all the groups with which its members have some kinship have been revised. Stamens six to ten. or more wide, white, pink, or rose, commonly six- or seven-lobed. A partnership between a botanist John Bartram from Pennsylvania and Peter Collinson, an English quaker, resulted in the exploration of Rhododendrons in America. The flowers are in the shades of whites and purples. – Shrubs up to 10 ft high. Anthodendron Endl. They may be ground covers which are usually a few inches tall while some may grow into huge trees that go up to 100 feet in height. N. and N.W. The distribution is similar to that of the typical subseries except that it does not extend so far into the Himalaya. To achieve this you may need to apply Yates Soil Acidifier Liquid Sulfur to lower the pH of the soil. Dwarf evergreen shrubs with small aromatic leaves; scales lacerate (with a jagged edge). At one time R. griersonianum was incongruously associated with it, but is now placed in a separate series, also monotypic. ), neither of which bears much resemblance to it in floral characters. Gard. The inflorescence is laxer than in ss. Some series, such as those mentioned at the beginning of this paragraph, receive higher rank. 156-222. Mai Ajánlat. Plants perform well on north or east facing slopes. The number of stamens in the genus Rhododendron is not generally a character of much significance, and may fluctuate even among closely allied species. Leaves on the average larger than in the other subseries, up to 6 in. Yunnan and bordering part of Tibet through upper Burma to the E. Himalaya as far west as Bhutan. – Erect deciduous shrubs. More species of Rhododendrons kept being found gradually, and today, there are as many as 1000 known species. Pentanthera (G. Don) Koch; Rhod. s. Stamineum. The number is certainly excessively large, considering the limited range of variation in this group. IV. Rhododendron maddenii is the type species for this subsection. Warm climate rhododendrons have become readily available and are often called ‘vireya’. Inflorescence few-flowered. About seven species from N.W. constantly axillary inflorescences are grouped in two subgenera – Rhodorastrum (Maxim.) It is discussed by Rehder in Species of Rhododendron, p. 121. There are several types of Rhododendrons. Nipponicum. “A Brocade Pillow” is a Japanese book which was published in 1692.

Rhododendron calophytum produces pink flowers during spring and is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 6 to 9. Its colour is white (though rarely), creamy white, yellow, or in various impure shades between red and purple. This genus covers about 1000 species which are subdivided into numerous subgenera. ss. Calyx small. The young growths spring from terminal or pseudo-terminal buds, or from buds below the inflorescences. The group is a small one, with about nine species. Williamsianum. The buds are bright pink in color but once open, the flowers are a pale pink. Leaves rarely more than 4 in. & Wils., in part – Here are placed two subseries, ss. – The main species in this subseries is R. sutchuenense (q.v.) Tibet to the Tibetan side of the E. Himalaya and Bhutan; R. beesianum extends into northernmost Burma. It has large green leaves and grows up to 10 feet tall. Boothii. cit., pp. long, white, rose, or pale yellow. 34 (1975), pp. Rarely, as in s. Trichocladum, the rim is absent. Pojarkova. The hole should be as deep as the root ball, and the width should be twice the size of the root ball. – The one species in this subseries, a native of Japan, differs from all other members of the genus in its dimorphic stamens (see description). Opening from bright pink flower buds, its huge, strongly scented, lily-like, pure white flowers, up to 3.5 in. ss. Rhododendron Blue Peter is sun and heat tolerant as wll as cold hardy. Corolla usually campanulate or tubular-campanulate, white, rose, pink or yellow, five-lobed, up to 13⁄4 in. Calyx mostly small or obsolete.

Style slender and straight. 166-7). Branchlets slender, bristly-glandular or sometimes glabrous. Sc. 51-60, 101-9. Older and more established rhododendrons may need a chainsaw to cut through the large woody branches, especially toward the middle of the plant. Leaves usually less than 1 in. Corolla funnel-shaped to campanulate, 2 in. Corolla tubular-campanulate or campanulate, red, with conspicuous nectar-pouches. 55-91.) ss. It has a wide range, from S.W. The leaves are always persistent, and usually last for two years. Indeed only two other species show this character, and both are on that account grouped with R. edgeworthii, namely, R. seinghkuense and R. pendulum (qq.v. Leaves up to 5 in. In Southeast Asia, similar dispersal and adaptation have accompanied major t… – Leaves 1 to 4 in. This latter exhibitor also won the prestigious First Class Certificate (FCC) in that very same year with the clone ‘Frank Ludlow’ from Ludlow, Sherriff & Taylor #6694. Calyx variable, often very large. About thirty species are recognised, mostly little known. Orbiculare and ss. It is grown best in loamy and acidic soil. Style stout and bent downwards (except in ss. Corolla white or rose (except in the red-flowered R. strigillosum, which, according to Cowan, is out of place here and should be transferred to the Glischrum subseries). Inflorescence terminal. A taxonomically difficult subseries, much in need of revision. Daphnes may not be the most robust garden plants, and they may make you work to meet their demands, but your senses will convince you they are worth it. They have frilled petals. Tephropeplum). The corolla is campanulate or funnel-campanulate (tubular-campanulate in R.fulgens), yellow and spotted in R. lanatum, lilac, rosy purple, pink or white in R. campanulatum, R. wallichii and R. tsariense, deep red in R. fulgens, R. sberriffii, and R. succothii. The leaves of Rhododendron Blue Peter are large and mid-green in color. Except in R. lanatum and R. tsariense the ovary is glabrous or almost so. They are trumpet-shaped and found in solitary. Besides being incredibly adaptive, Philodendron is … Large shrubs or trees, with stout, tomentose young stems. – Of the two closely allied species in this subseries only R. calophytum is cultivated. Canadense. Inflorescence with three to ten flowers. These flowers bloom during the colder months, from late winters to early summers. Heath Subfamily: Ericoideae Taxonomists expanded the Heath subfamily to include the former Rhododendron subfamily, as well as the entire Crowberry family (formerly Empetraceae).The resulting mishmash is less intuitive than previous classification systems. Tolerates a fair amount of sun in cool northern summers, but leaves may scorch in hot afternoon sun in the St. Louis area. Azalea L., in part; Rhodora L.; Anthodendron Reichb. Ovary five-celled; style very short. Hybrids of Rhododendron indicium and Rhododendron tamurae were being cultivated in Japan in the 17th century. Crinigerum. The calyx is small. Only a few are cultivated, these mostly Japanese. The azaleastrums, or ‘false azaleas’, are a rather heterogeneous assem­blage of species, grouped together in the subgenus Azaleastrum Planch, ex Koch (Rhod. They are found in hemispherical, compact clusters. Ovary relatively broad, hairy or glandular. wide (8 cm), are softly pink flushed on the outside and exhibit faint green markings in their throat. Leaves mostly oblong or elliptic. ss. All the other lepidotes are grouped in a single subgenus with the exception of the Trichocladum series, which is given subgeneric rank as subgen. long, with a covering beneath of rosulate hairs giving a plastered, mealy or cobwebby indumentum according to their density; but in R. citriniflorum the indumentum is woolly and bistrate, and in some species the undersides are glabrous and usually papillose. 94-6). His genus Azalea comprised species with five stamens, of which four are members of the Azalea series of Rhododendron-. In s. Falconeri the upper stratum is made up of peculiar funnel- or cup-shaped hairs, which produce a thick indumentum; in a few species these hairs are sparse and there is a thinner indumentum composed mainly of the lower stratum of rosulate hairs. s. Semibarbatum. Prefers a sun dappled or high open shade. ; Rhod. Stamens five to ten, usually hairy at the base, exserted (rarely included in the tube). The characters used to separate the species are poorly correlated, and too much weight has been given to size of calyx and the precise number of stamens. long, more rarely saucer-shaped, white, pink, magenta, or red, often spotted or with basal markings. A site produced by the International Dendrology Society. The flowers are often urn-shaped with fused petals, ex Endl. The azaleas are slenderly branched shrubs. It was, presumably for the sake of completeness, extended to cover the whole genus (with the exception of the Malayan, Indonesian, and New Guinea species). There are about 1000 species of Rhododendrons. They are the ideal evergreen flower species for a winter landscape. Griffithianum). Selense in another (notably the partly glandular style and the slender, often curved seed-capsule). – The two species in this subseries are characterised by broad-elliptic to roundish leaves, cordate or auriculate at the base, a shape not met with in the other subseries. Hence, Rhododendron means Rose Tree. Tsutsutsi (G. Don) Pojarkova; Rhod. Szechwan to the eastern end of the Himalaya. Yunnan and bordering parts of Tibet, in the alpine and subalpine zones. long (longer in R. beesianum, shorter in the dwarfer species), indumentum of the undersides commonly suede-like or felted or powdery, sometimes reduced to a thin veil of hairs or almost wanting. long. This series, with three species, is represented in cultivation mainly by R. edgeworthii (bullatum), which is easily recognised among lepidote rhododendrons by its rugose leaves densely tomentose beneath and its fragrant, white or rose-tinted, funnel-shaped flowers. Opening from bright pink flower buds, its huge, strongly scented, lily-like, pure white flowers, up to 3.5 in. sanguineum Alliance’, Notes Roy. The coup de grâce to Azalea as a separate genus was given by Maximowicz in his authoritative work Rhododendreae Asiae Orientalis (1870), which laid the foundation for all later classifications of the genus. Calophytum. Leaves of hard texture, glabrous at maturity, with a cartilaginous edge, usually acute at the apex, mostly 3 to 5 in. The botanical name for this group (as a section) is sect. Remove dead flowers regularly as new buds are under these dead flowers. – The species grouped in this subseries are for the most part of dwarf stature and confined to high elevations in N.W. ; Rhod. They grow best in humus rich, leafy, acidic soil, in place that is partly shady. Rhododendrons ( or Rhodos) are spectacular spring flowering shrubs or trees that are suited to mild to temperate and cold climates. Eurhododendron Maxim., in part; Rhod. Notes, Vol. Rhododendron Bow Bells is an evergreen shrub that grows vertically. Yunnan to E. Nepal. They are an extremely slow growing species, growing up to 3 feet in 10 years. There are no species in the Sino-Himalayan region proper, the only Chinese species – R. adenopodum – being a native of Hupeh and bordering parts of E. Szechwan. Revision: R.Y.B. subgen. Rhododendron Elviira are low maintenance shrubs. Some basic requirements for planting Rhododendrons are as following: Related: Types of Germander | Types of Boxwood Shrubs | Types of Eucalyptus Trees, 11 Types of Rhododendrons for Your Gardens. Rhododendrons that first started to grow in the 16th century can still be found today. Glischrum. Azaleastrum Planch, ex Maxim. They grow best in well-drained, acidic soil. Inflorescence terminal with rarely fewer than eight flowers; rachis usually well developed; pedicels rarely less than 1 in. and R. micromeres (not treated). Calyx variable. Published by the exclusive Rhododendron Society under the editorship of J. Capsule short and stout, or oblong. Rhododendron Nova Zembla is an evergreen shrub. Capsule slender, usually curved. a. Anthodendron Reichb. This subseries extends farther west than the others, occurring in the eastern Himalaya on both sides of the range; if R. purdomii (a native of Shensi) is excluded, the north­eastern limit is in S.W. Style usually short, stout and bent (but often straight in R. glaucophyllum). long, those of the cultivated species glabrous, broad-elliptic to obovate, rounded at the apex (but narrower and thinly hairy beneath in others). It must be grown in soil which is well-drained, highly organic and acidic. Leaves up to 11⁄2 in. The elepidote rhododendrons are very uniform in their essential botanical characters and in the estimation of most botanists constitute a single subgenus, for which the correct name is subgen. Its position in Sleumer’s classification is: subgenus Rhododendron section Pogonanthum. Their buds are pink in color, but they bloom to give white colored flowers. Corolla campanulate, up to 1 in. ), the type of which is R. ovatum. ex Rehd. In the Grande series a thin, skin-like or plastered unistrate indumentum is the rule rather than the exception, and where an upper layer is present, giving a woollier indumentum, the hairs are of a more conventional kind. long, often glaucous when young, densely scaly beneath. Flowers in terminal clusters, very shortly stalked. Leaves persistent, up to 4 in. Corolla campanulate, yellow, pink, or white. Azalea (L. emend. The numerous garden hybrids are also mainly derived from Japanese species (and the mainland R. simsii). Thomsonii in one set of characters (leaf- and corolla-shape) and with ss. Ovary glandular, or tomentose or both glandular and tomentose, or glabrous. long, papillose beneath in most species and either glabrous or with a more or less detersile indumentum. It blooms after R.arboreum and R.barbatum in Uttarakhand. 18 Grayanotoxins are found in all parts of the plant, including the flowers and nectar, and as few as two leaves may cause serious poisonings. The series ranges from upper Burma through W. China as far north as Kansu. But some series are certainly entitled to rank as sections, e.g., s. Anthopogon, s. Ovatum, and s. Stamineum, while the azaleas, which in Species of Rhododendron are grouped in a single series, represent two whole sections of Maximowicz’s classification, each of which should probably rank as a subgenus. ), not closely related to any other rhododendron. Of the five species, two – R. concatenans and R. xanthocodon – are closely related to R. cinnabarinum and will probably be sunk in it before long. Rhododendron / ˌroʊdəˈdɛndrən / (from Ancient Greek ῥόδον rhódon "rose" and δένδρον déndron "tree") is a genus of 1,024 species of woody plants in the heath family (Ericaceae), either evergreen or deciduous, and found mainly in Asia, although it is also widespread throughout the lowland and montane forests of the Pacific Northwest, California, and the highlands of the Appalachian Mountains of North America. Souliei. Compound hairs may also be present, and two species, R. hirtipes and R. vesiculiferum, have peculiar bladder-like hairs on the veins. Scales on underside of leaf uniform in colour. This system was designed to cope with the vast quantities of new plant material received from the Orient, North America, etc. In the rainier parts of Sino-Himalaya they are less common. Best grown in acidic, organically rich, humusy, medium moisture, moisture-retentive but well-drained soils in part shade. It is part of Sleumer’s subgenus Pseudorhodorastrum (see s. Scabrifolium). Dwarf shrubs. The artificial classification was intended as a temporary measure, but it became firmly entrenched following the publication of The Species of Rhododendron in 1930 by the Royal Horticultural Society. Stamens twelve to twenty-five, rarely ten. The Hymenanthes rhododendrons are mostly medium-sized to large shrubs or trees, very rarely dwarf. long, hairy at the margin and often on the upper surface; undersurface glaucous. 412-13 (Mel. It is a sucking insect, whose presence can be detected in May and June by a mottling of the upper leaf surface and the presence of rusty or chocolate spots beneath. Azaleas belong to two of these subgenera. Leaves 4 to 10 in. Orbiculare. Leaves glabrous, with a pronounced mucro. The flowers resemble those of Ledum, except that the segments are united at the base, and are borne in racemes. For buds see above. Between 1874 and the early years of this century Messrs Veitch raised and put into commerce about 200 hybrids from these introductions, some of great complexity, which were familiar glasshouse plants before the first world war. The number of stamens is around double that of the lobes. Tsutsia). In the forty-five years since it was published many new species have been described and brought into cultivation, and various amendments have been made to the classification originally adopted. The flowers have yellow or brown colored flecks on the upper lobe. Pseudanthodendron Sleumer; Rhod. The leaves are 3 to 8 in. – A polymorphic group, uncommon in cultivation. – Small or medium-sized shrubs to about 10 ft (R. mallotum sometimes a small tree). The Malesian Vireyas have been represented in cultivation since the 1840s. K. Koch. subgen. Months of March, April and May are peak seasons for Rhododendrons. 215-27). All have deep red, tubular-campanulate, fleshy corollas and are confined to Burma and bordering parts of Yunnan and N.E. The group is elepidote (without scales) and the hairs when present, are always unbranched – a combination they share with the azaleas. The species grouped here are what most gardeners would think of as ‘typical’ or ‘true’ rhododendrons, for they far outnumber the lepidote rhododendrons in cultivation and, because of their greater bulk, they are more conspicuous. long, their undersides usually glaucous, with scales of two kinds, the smaller scales pale yellow, variously spaced, the larger dark brown, scattered. & Wils.).
