Expedition to China – RSBG Online Event

October 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

$10 for RSBG members, $20 for non-members. Buy Tickets: https://rhodygarden.org/.../zoom-talk-the-2019.../

Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden director Steve Hootman will take you to the mountains of south Yunnan and adjacent Guangxi with images and details about the plants seen during his fall 2019 expedition. This trip is another in a series designed to explore the regions away from the main center of distribution of the genus Rhododendron in an effort to fill in the gaps in our knowledge and to introduce new taxa into cultivation.

Highlights include the first botanical exploration of a rhododendron-covered mountain on the Vietnam border, as well as several days in some of the finest remaining old-growth forests in China. Steve will also discuss and illustrate new findings and theories about subsection Fortunea, including several new, enigmatic, and even unknown species and their relationship to each other.
As always, this will be an entertaining and educational lecture and discussion with beautiful images from some of the most remote and least explored regions of China. The talk will be followed by a moderated Q&A.
Your registration fee directly supports the conservation of the Rhododendron genus.
