2024 Azalea Seed List

NOTICE: Due to numerous issues with overseas shipment of seed, we are no longer accepting orders from non-US addresses.
Starting January 1st, seed is distributed to ASA members and contributors on a first come, first served basis. Starting March 1st, seed is distributed to anyone on a first come, first served basis. The seed lots are in alphabetic order by seed parent name. All seed not distributed before the annual convention will be offered for sale there.

Seed is packaged approximately 50 seeds in a #1 coin envelope, at a cost of $3.00 per envelope. U.S. shipping and handling costs are an additional $5.00 per total order. Seed orders will be sent by first class mail.
