      Can't believe you know Ted Meredith.  I have been to his place for the last 3 years to see his natives in bloom.  This is wonderful.  Hope they have moved into their new house by now. It was supposed to be ready by Thanksgiving but I haven't talked to them through the holidays.  When did you meet Ted?  He and Sandy are such kind people and have invited our Master Gardener group to tour the natives and provided lunch too.
       
      Sincerely,

      Subject: [AZ] seed exchange

      The Azalea Chapter of ARS is conducting a seed exchange this year. We are pleased that several members are trying to propagate native azaleas and rhododendrons for the first time. We have far more seeds than we can use and we want to share them with anyone who is interested.  I have visited several native stands of azaleas and collected quite a few seeds.  Other chapter members have helped and contributed seed as well.   Below is a list of some of the remaining seeds and in some cases a link to the Georgia Native Plant Society website that features some photos of parent plants at the collection sites.  All seed are open pollinated. Please contact me by email and we can arrange a method of exchanging.  If you have some seeds that you would like to contribute please respond as well.  Please send to KGohring@... as I do not always check the yahoo mail as frequently as I should.  I have sown many of these and there seems to be good viability.
