Hirsutum.info: About Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Vireyas; a virtual arboretum

Why www.hirsutum.info?
Rhododendron hirsutum was the first rhododendron to be classified and named. It was discovered in the 16th century by a Flemish botanist, Charles l'Ecluse, who later became called Clusius.

The purpose of this website is to give an overview (photos and information) of as many rhododendron species and cultivars (hybrids) as possible.
A virtual botanical garden. A virtual arboretum.
An online database with information and pictures.

Everyone can help to build this database. Just send pictures of your rhododendrons.
