Some of our Interests

There are pictures of thousands of other azaleas, both evergreen and deciduous, at the Azalea Society picture website. To see pictures of azaleas by name use its search box or browse the alphabetic galleries.

The Azalea Society offers membership to any one with an interest in azaleas, from home gardeners, collectors and students to plant professionals. Local chapters have social activities, garden tours, meetings and plant sales of unusual varieties. National conventions have garden tours, talks by well-known azalea authorities, plant sales, and the opportunities to make and renew friendships. The Azalean, our quarterly journal, has timely informative articles about azalea culture, hybridizing, propagation, garden design, new introductions and chapter activities.

 you can help
To participate in our website development, read on. You can help us set priorities for developing the pages named by the sidebar links, and to suggest other pages. You can also do some site testing, serve on the website committee, or take responsibility for one or more pages of the website.

First we need your opinions regarding the relative importance of the current and proposed pages, to guide us in setting development priorities. Tell us:
  • which pages you like or will use the most
  • which pages a casual visitor might be most interested in
  • what other pages would be of value to you and the general public
Then we need help testing these pages as they become available. Let us know, and we will contact you via email when they are ready to test.

To be the source of current azalea data, we need some members to "own" specific pages and be responsible for keeping them current, and to add information to some of the databases. While we can provide the tools, it is much more than a one-person job. This is your chance to help the Azalea Society in a BIG way, and ensure that our collective knowledge of our favorite plants is presented to the public in the most useful way possible.

Click the name to open an e-mail to Dave Banks, chairman of the ASA website committee. Tell us your opinions, and/or your area of interest and how you would like to be involved.
