March 20, 2019 – Ole Jonny Larsen from Norway, speaker at the Bremen, Germany 2018 International Rhododendron Conference.
Topic: Rhododendron Species culture in Scandinavia. The interest in Rhododendron culture is high in Scandinavia, especially along the coast lines. The Norwegian west coast (where I live) have among the best climates in Europe for growing Rhododendrons, after the British islands. Collectors in Denmark and Norway have been doing lots of research over the last decades to test out which species can be grown, and the results have been surprising. Especially in western Norway the so-called big leaved species have had focus over the last years. One of my special interests are American native species. This speech will also show lots of rare and newly introduced species, now being tested out in Scandinavia.
