Preserving America’s Finest Native Rhododendrons

Rare Finds and Exceptional Specimens: Preserving America’s Finest Native Rhododendrons

Thursday, April 15 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Presented by Steve Wright, Director of Horticulture/Curator of Plant Collections, Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens

In this presentation, Steve will talk about our exciting new curatorial initiative to develop a native rhododendron germplasm (genetics) repository at Jenkins. He will discuss exactly what we are doing, how we are doing, and why it is important. In addition, Steve will tell about the progress of this project and share stories and pictures of some of the highlights through the first year. This is a program for all plant lovers who appreciate the unusual and extraordinary, and who enjoy azaleas and rhododendrons as much as we do.

This lecture will be held virtually. A link and viewing instructions will be emailed after your registration is complete.

Free of charge; registration is required.
