Wanted Micro Rhododendron Species

Does anyone know of any sources for Rhododendron calsotrotum varietiants, or R. forestii, R. imperator or R. saluense? and a source that will mail plants? I knew of a source and had purchased some a few years back, but they no longer ship plants.

Thanks,

Hello Ryan, welcome to the NARGS Forum. My garden is rather exposed and dry so not condusive to Rhododendrons, but in the past I used to belong to the American Rhododendron Society and purchase rhodies (via group order) from Greer Gardens.  They still have a current web nursery list, and all those species that you mention are available there:

Thanks Mark.  That looks like a good source.

Hi Ryan,

The only California rhodo nursery I have shopped at is Singing Tree in McKinleyville.

The plants I was interested in were their scented ones, so I don't know about the ones you mentioned, but they have a website so you can check.

Whitney Gardens (www.whitneygardens.com)offers Rh. calostrotum, Rh. forrestii and quite a few other low growing Rhoodendrons. They ship.
And do not forget the Rhododendron Species Foundation  (in Federal Way, WA).
