The following part of my database presents the specimens I write about starting with the letters "Q" or "R." Would you like more information about any of these plants? Just click the plant's link and you will be brought to a full description of it (plus advice on how to grow it).
The entries below include both some spring stalwarts for your landscaping and some autumn stars. The Rhododendron genus (which gives us azaleas, those springtime beauties) falls into the former camp. Meanwhile Quercus (oak trees) and Rhus (sumac shrubs) grace our yards with wonderful color in the fall. Sumacs (I'm talking about shrubs such as 'Tiger Eyes,' not poison sumac) usher in the fall-foliage season, being some of the first plants to give us autumn color. Oaks reside at the opposite end of the spectrum, furnishing pretty leaves later in fall after many of the other trees have already lost their leaves.
If you don't see what you were looking for in the entries below, go to my Scientific Plant Names index.
