John, looking through the field notes from ACE (only 14 years ago) about 20 Rhododendron collections were made, most but not all were identified in the field. These included two seed collections of Rhododendron campylogynum - ACE 1481 (coll Bei Ma Shan, south side of road, leaves glossy green, shrub to 30cm) and ACE 2499 (coll Cangshan Mts above television, evergreen shrub to 20cm).

WELCOME to the forum Jens.

Diane C. - It was the Alpine Garden Society, Danish Chapter website. Got it working www.agsdanmark.dk   

This shot is under Fotoarchiv. and is the same cross previously mentioned by Diane W. Photo by Frank Thorsgaard, Esbjerg on the Danish site but am sure no such parentage was listed on Jens' plant. Spot the Shortia?

Rob - My guess is if the original owner was a serious rhodophile he/she would most likely have ordered cw seed. Thanks for the research. Nice shot of your pots on the site.

Is the ACE list online, the hard copy is long gone.  I only have the list of species named later.

Thanks for all Your efforts.

So most likely
(campylogynum x cremastum)
= true Rh. campylogynum !
acording to the classification.

John i have paper copies of the field notes. It would be a time consuming task to copy them for you but can look up anything you or anyone else needs from them.

Rob - I was putting away the old AGS seed lists file folder when the ACE Field notes fell out. Thanks for the offer.  I also have the Japan expedition notes as well. 

Lots of great bulbs here from your nursery back in the mid 1990's.

johnw - low last night -5c, -3c now. Cold tonight, most of the continent is gripped in this.

Have been incontact with Frank T. He confirmed (campylogynum x cremastum). I cant recall to have been given the name, hence my Q. Might have forgotten the name in the execitement of this little wonder!
Still looking good with some flowerbuds for 09.
In the sunny weather to day , I have accesed my campylogynums . The Yellow one look just like a tru campylogynum - but one thing puzzel me: The foliage have some of the nasty smell of brachyanthum !!!! And do have some resemblance to my 25yrs old hybrid
Tessa Dane (campylogynum x brachyanthum v. hypolepidotum). But I will stick to name (campylogynum x cremastum).

Just as we are talking about Rhododendron campylogynum, I see in the AGS bulletin, (which is just arrived, so I've only got as far as leafing through to see the pictures!!) a plant which looks to me to be just that.... though it is captioned as being Rhododendron pumilum  ::) pic is on page 490


An aside...
 I think I'll be reading the article on Estonia from Forumists Shelagh and Brian Smethurst first, then the one  by John Richards...... wonder how other folks prioritise their reading? I suppose some folks just start at the beginning!!
My Father used to start with a final article and work forward  :P   On the other hand, once Ian discovers the bulletin has arrived, it could be weeks before I get near it.  :(
