Rhododendrons are called “The King of Shrubs” because of their commanding presence in the garden.  Often the attraction starts when you see a rhododendron on a garden tour or at your favorite nursery.  You put one in your garden, and soon you realize it draws your eye more than anything else in your landscape.  This usually leads to adding more rhododendrons, perhaps with different leaf shapes or flower colors.  Next thing you know — you are a collector!  Then you want to read everything available about rhododendrons.  And, wouldn’t it be fun to get together with other collectors to talk about rhododendrons and visit beautiful gardens?

Join the Ozark Chapter American Rhododendron Society — you can do all these things and also receive the quarterly Journal of the American Rhododendron Society, packed with information and color photos of rhododendrons, plant hunting expeditions, etc.

Annual dues are $40 for individual/family or $75 for sustaining member.
