Why You Should Join Our Chapter?

Rhododendrons and Azaleas come in a wide range of colors and foliage. In their beauty they surpass any other plant in the landscape. If you are interested in learning more about growing and collecting rhododendron and azalea, the American Rhododendron Society is just the right society for you to join. Its activities include national and regional meetings, publication of excellent journals, scientific studies and research.

Greater Philadelphia Chapter is one of the many chapters of the American Rhododendron Society. Our chapter sponsors flower shows, plant sales, cut flower (truss) shows, annual banquets, picnics, program meetings with expert speakers providing exchange of advise and expertise as well as good fellowship among fellow gardeners.

Every year, volunteers from our chapter collect cuttings of native and hybrid rhododendrons from the gardens of members and friends of the chapter. The cuttings are rooted and later transplanted into four inch pots. These unusual and generally unavailable varieties are then sold only to members.
