Wild Rhododendrons of Bhutan

In Wally and Kathy Reed's January 8, 2015, presentation on the Rhododendrons and Culture of Bhutan at the ARS Eugene Chapter Meeting, they used a Power Point presentation provided by Rebecca Pradhan, the author of the book Wild Rhododendrons of Bhutan. Wally has provided the ARS Eugene Chapter with a copy of this presentation for our use. In it are photos of the rhododendrons that grow in Bhutan and are categorized by the climate zone in which they occur. If you would like to browse these photos and information at your leisure they are provided here by clicking on Wild Rhododendrons of Bhutan.

Note: This will download a Power Point folder to your computer. You will need a program such as PowerPoint or Keynote on your computer to then open it but it is a very nice small presentation.
