Note: This help text disappears after the first search is executed.

A Work in Progress: This page is definitely a work in progress. We have just finished uploading the cultivar names from the old web site. Only ~1,500 out of the total ~11,000 cultivars have photos and descriptions. Filling this void will take time, and we desperately need some help. We hope to be able to automate to some degree the migration of photographs from our picture website on pbase. That effort will be ongoing in the near future. If that does not turn out to be feasible, the images will need to be extracted and uploaded manually. That will be a LOT of work. If you are willing to help with uploading descriptions or photographs, please contact Paul Beck for instructions.

Browsing: In you are interested in simply browsing through the database by cultivar name, click on one of the A B C D E F ... bookmarks above the search criteria. That will list all cultivars whose name starts with the selected letter. Once you have selected a bookmark, additional detailed bookmarks will appear to help you navigate through that portion of the alphabet. Those identify the first 3 letters of the first and last cultivar name displayed by clicking on that expanded bookmark.

Searching by Cultivar: You may enter some of the letters which start the cultivar name, and then press Enter or click the Submit button. All cultivars whose names start with the letters entered will be listed. Note that you should not enter the quotes that surround the cultivar name, or, in the case of Species, the R. that appears before the cultivar name. If you wish to search for a term anywhere in the cultivar name, precede the text with a percent sign (%). For example, if you enter %red in the cultivar search field, any plant with 'red' anywhere in the name will be returned.

Searching by Group: You may list all the plants in a group by selecting the group name from the Group pick list, and then click Submit. The number after the group name is the number of cultivars for that group in our database. Note that the Group may be combined with the other search terms to produce a more refined search result.

Searching by Type: Our database contains four types of azaleas: Azaleodendron, Deciduous, Evergreen, and Unknown. Definitions of the four types are listed below. The three letters enclosed in [ ] define the shorthand for the type used in the listing.

  • [az]aleo[d]endron – the plant is a hybrid of an azalea and a rhododendron (74)
  • [dec]iduous – the plant drops all its leaves during the winter (2615)
  • [ev]er[g]reen – the plant holds some of its leaves during the winter (8135)
  • [unk]nown – the plant is an azalea, with no other published information about its type or hybrid group (111)

Searching by Color: This is a multi-select pick list. Hold down the Ctrl key (Command on Mac) to select more than one color. Predominant colors for most cultivars have not yet been entered in our database, so this has limited utility at this time.

Searching by Bloom Time: This is a single select pick list. Again, many cultivars do not have bloom time set, so this will only return a small number of the potential cultivars.

Reference Column: The Ref column title is linked to a document which explains the entries in that column. This column indicates the original source of the information regarding the cultivar & group. You may also click here for that document.
