Rhododendron Hybrids and Hybridizers

Once upon a time, Bob Pettipas began compiling this list of hybridizers from Atlantic and Eastern Canada and elsewhere whose plants are hardy and maybe useful for breeding hardiness for this region.

The spreadsheet includes selections from Steele, Weagle, Craig, Swain, Kentville Research Centre, Vineland, Leach & Mezitt. This is a work in progress, and we welcome others to contribute data.

In 2003, Dr Don L Crag summarized 50 years of hybridizing rhododendrons and Azaleas in Nova Scotia.
