The seed list for ARS 2004 Seed Exchange

Kristian Theqvist, Finland, 5b

I made last summer quite a lot of new crossings with an aim to get super hardy rhododendrons that would survive in Finland. Unfortunately the yield of seeds was this time very low and I did not get many extra seeds for the ARS Seed Exchange. Anyhow, I want to share a couple of my crosses although they may not be among the most interesting ones. I send also this year wild collected R. tomentosum ssp. tomentosum as it seemed that last year tomentosum seeds were sold out quite fast.
