name conventions
 (what the different formats show you)

lower case italics : the named plant is a species, e.g., vaseyi; the name shown is shorthand for the correct and complete name, for example: vaseyi is shorthand for Rhododendron vaseyi A. Gray (where A. Gray is the name of the person who named it)

‘Initial Capitals and Surrounding Quotes’ : the named plant is a cultivar, for example: ‘Ben Morrison’ is shorthand for Rhododendron ‘Ben Morrison’

– plain text without quotes or (name within parentheses): the name is a synonym, a spelling variant, or a breeder number for a named azalea, for example:
‘Corry’ (T21-9), ‘Wallowa Red’ (‘Red Hot’)

Japanese names : are hyphenated and capitalized following usage in the International Rhododendron Register and Checklist (IRRC), for example:
‘Beni-kirishima’, rather than ‘Benikirishima’ or ‘Beni Kirishima’; all published versions are shown, with the IRRC version treated as the accepted name

name sort sequence : is as if the names had no spaces or punctuation, to approximate human ordering, for example:
‘Buzzard’, ‘B. Y. M.’, ‘B. Y. Morrison’, ‘Byron Mayo’

pictures : of a plant are available if its name is a link, for example: ‘Mount Saint Helens’

Note that picture colors only approximate the actual flower colors due to differences in lighting, and differences in camera and monitor settings. For the best color, adjust your monitor to see a difference between each of these 16 shades of gray:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F

• reduce the brightness to see more differences to the right;

• increase the brightness to see more differences to the left; or
• reduce the contrast if you only see differences in the center.

The pictures are on a separate picture website, and they open in a new browser window. While you are there, you can explore its next, previous, or various …gallery links to see if there are more pictures of the plant or other plants of interest.
