# New

As the show has also been cancelled this year we have decided to try our very first “Virtual” Scotland’s Annual National Rhododendron . So please take a look and join in all the fun. Its simple to exhibit and view.

# Important Notice:

Due to the Covid_19 pandemic the Yearbook distubution may be disturbed so we have decided to publish our latest Yearbook No. 21 online for all to see (without being a member). We hope you enjoy the read and perhaps learn something about these wonderful shrubs. Click here to read.

Please also not that various dates and meeting are mentioned within the publication. The majority have been cancelled, but it would be best to check out with the organisation before travelling to any events.

Welcome to the Scottish Rhododendron Society

The SRS was set up over 33 years ago to promote a wider interest in the genus Rhododendron (Rhododendron ponticum Statement). We are a Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society.

This is a vast genus of woody plants with possibly a thousand species and still more being discovered. The geographic range and variety of habitat-from tropical to alpine, the size, from small leaved shrubs to forest trees, the varieties of bark, foliage and flowers make this group of plants an  immense subject for study. Rhododendrons generate great passion and enthusiasm in those who seek to find new species, identify and conserve existing ones or simply grow and propagate them.

There are many specialists in our society but the majority are keen amateur growers with an interest in all types of plants

Every garden, even the smallest, can house a few rhododendrons and SRS can introduce you to the delight of growing this beautiful group of plants in the company of other like minded gardeners .

We hold seminars, study days and tours of gardens seldom open to the general public. Events page

The Society organises an annual show at the end of April where competitors show their best blooms from every rhododendron section, including species and hybrids. Anyone may enter and a novice cup is awarded to the first time exhibitor who wins this class. A visit to the show will provide an excellent introduction to our society and you will receive a warm welcome.
