Good Performer Recommendations

The Public Education Committee has asked ARS Chapters to compile lists of proven performing rhododendrons.  The lists give plant varieties with nice form, foliage and flowers that are hardy in each area and resistant to pests and diseases.  The listed plants have consistently performed well in members' gardens and are recommended to others living in the nearby area.
