Acquires and maintains as comprehensive a collection of Rhododendron species as possible.

Conserves the Rhododendron species through the cultivation and distribution of selected forms and documented wild collected material as obtained in the field or by other means.

Supports the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden, a living plant museum and effectively designed garden for the display and cultivation of Rhododendron species, along with other plants with which they associate.

Provides information, education, and support of research for persons interested in the genus Rhododendron.


The Rhododendron Species Foundation is a non-profit organization founded and incorporated in 1964 by Pacific Northwest members of the American Rhododendron Society in order to secure the finest authentic forms of Rhododendron species and to develop a comprehensive collection of this plant genus. Because of the destruction of Rhododendron habitat in many areas of the world, conservation has become of primary importance in recent years. This concern led to the formation of the Rhododendron Species Foundation and has guided its activities.
