The other looks at some lateblooming plants you may want to consider in order toextend the flowering season in your garden.We are very excited about our fall event that has beenorganized by ARS Chapters and Master Gardeners onVancouver Island in lieu of a regular fall conference. It iscalled Fall into Gardening. It will be two half-days of talksgiven by experts from around the world on a variety oftopics. This is not just for ARS members but is free foranyone who wishes to participate.Continuing with our desire to educate, Steve Henninghas written an excellent piece on Lepidote Rhododendronsand their unique structures called "scales." Steve has alsoprovided a tribute to the legacy of Pennsylvania hybridizerJohn Doppel who passed away this spring. As most of usrealize, there are limitations as to what the ARS Journal isable to print about the accomplishments of plant breeders.However, the R & A News is more flexible and can serve asa vehicle to share thoughts and images of the lovely plantsthese people have created.Best wishes from the R & A News committee: Don Hyatt(co-chair), Maria Stewart (co-chair), Steve Henning, DaveBanks, and Linda Derkach.Photo by Don Hyatt: Rhododendron prunifoliumHarold GreerGone Too Soon

We will surelyhave extended tributes in future publications, but wewanted to use this newsletter to let our membersknow of this colossal loss to the ARS and the entirehorticultural community.Harold was an icon. Working with rhododendrons

Harold was an icon. Working with rhododendronsand azaleas since early childhood, he had a depth ofknowledge that few could match. Most of us lookedto him as the ultimate authority. Harold was theconsummate nurseryman, a renowned author, acelebrated hybridizer, a phenomenal photographer,an entertaining speaker, and a great friend. Hewillingly shared his knowledge, photographs, andexpertise worldwide. He will be missed more than wecan possibly comprehend at this time.We send our sincere condolences to his wife Nancy,members of his family, and to all who knew andadmired him.Photo by Don Hyatt: Harold GreerPlanning Ahead!"Fall into Gardening"Virtual Fall ConferenceOctober 23-24, 2021
