Cultivars By definition, varieties which arise in cultivation and known as cultivated varieties i.e. cultivars. These varieties do not normally come true from seed, and are propogated by various means. The resultant plants, sometimes known as ‘named varieties’, tend to be expensive, and in many cases, very much sought after. This site is intended to allow our visitors to share their knowledge and photographic images. Cultivar names are shown in single quotes.

Commonly referred to as  Japanese maples. Slow growing small shrubs and trees renowned for either their spring or autumn (sometimes both!) foliage. A wide variation in habit, colour, leaf shape etc!  A plant for the connoiseur, and you’ve probably guessed, my favourite.

Strictly, these plants no belong to the genus Rhododendron.
Many gardeners and nurseries continue to refer to this group as Azaleas, and since they are the main contributors to this web site, Ive gone with the flow!

Slow growing shrubs with beautiful blooms in spring on lush evergreen foliage. A good architectural plant. Flowers are not unlike those of a rose but, in most cases, they appear a couple of months earlier.
