 orders

Starting January 1st, seed is distributed to ASA members and contributors on a first come, first served basis. Starting May 1st, seed is distributed to anyone on a first come, first served basis.

Use the seed number in the first column of the seed list to identify the seed on your order (a crossed out number such as 132 shows that seed lot is sold out and should not be ordered). You may order only one envelope of one seed number per order, although you may order any number of envelopes of different seeds. If the seed you ordered is not available, we will use our judgement to make a substitution, unless you state “no substitutions” on your order.

Orders can be placed by an e-mail to Aaron Cook or by a letter addressed to

ASA Seed Exchange
804 Piedmont Ave
Valdese NC 28690-3161

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 $2.00 per envelope. Shipping and handling costs are an additional $3.00 per total order. Seed orders will be sent by first class mail.

Seed orders can be paid for with checks made out to “ASA” with “seed exchange” on the memo line, or by a credit card payment through PayPal sent to  with “seed exchange” in the accompanying email. Payment must accompany the order. Refunds will not be made for less than $4.00.

 notes

Parents: seed x pollen – the name of the seed parent first, followed by an “x” and the pollen parent if known (that is, hand pollinated).

• (Parentheses) enclose the parent names of complex crosses, e.g. (‘Golden Showers’ x ‘Lollipop’) x R. cumberlandense.

• ‘Midnight Flare’ = accepted name (printed in a dated publication, may or may not be registered)

• ‘ASA Orange’* = unpublished working name

• (Towe-Anastos, fragrant pink arb hybrid) = (hybridizer or hybrid group, and/or flower description)

• click a linked plant name to see a picture of that plant in a new window; then click the picture to show its gallery of thumbnails to see if there are more pictures of that plant; click a thumbnail to see its big picture; click the close box on the page to return to the seed list.

Type (of pollination) – hp = hand pollinated; cw = collected wild; op = open pollinated (unknown pollen parent).

Plant – evg = evergreen azalea; dec = deciduous azalea; azd = azaleodendron; lep = lepidote (scaly, little-leaf) rhododendron; ele = elepidote (non-scaly, big-leaf) rhododendron; oth = other plant
