|Приглашаю всех любителей Рододендронов, Камелий и просто любителей потусоватся со мной!
||[Feb. 17th, 2013|12:30 am]
Во вторник, 19 |ноября февраля, я буду делать презентацию про камелии в городе Санта Круз на собрании Американского Общества Рододендронов (the American Rhododendron Society).
Вы можете подумать "Неувязочка! Камелии не имеют никакого отношения к Рододендронам, кроме требования кисловатой почвы. Панчул превратился в Латынину, которая ловит метеориты Глонассом?"
Тем не менее меня пригласили, я поеду в Санта-Круз и буду показывать леди и джентлеменам из трех отделов Общества Рододендронов (The California Chapter, De Anza Chapter, и the Monterey Bay Chapter) слайды про камелии.
Сначала мы все отобедаем в ресторане Ristorante Italiano по адресу 555 Soquel Avenue, Santa Cruz, а потом отправимся в the Live Oak Senior Center, по адресу 1777 Capitola Road.
Ниже мои фотки рододендронов, не камелий. Я сделал эти фотки еще в апреле 2008 году в Sonoma Horticultural Nursery к северу от Сан-Франциско. Это исключительно утонченное место, в котором весной можно сделать русскую развиртуализацию:

On Tuesday February 19, at 7 PM, at the Live Oak Senior Center, 1777 Capitola Road, Santa Cruz, the Monterey Bay Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society will feature a program by Yuri Panchul on the care and culture of camellias.
The meeting will be held at the in the Senior Center Annex, which is the building furthest from the gas station. It is the building on the right as you drive in. Go through the gate just to the right of the left building then go right into the Annex.
In the program there will be an overview of the history of Camellia culture in Japan, China, Europe, US and Australia’; camellia species and cultivar groups - japonica, sasanqua, reticulate, higo and others; a link with tea (Camellia sinensis); unusual camellias - yellow, dwarf, summer-blooming, variegated, etc.; and differences between camellia and rhododendron culture (soil, fertilizer, sun tolerance, ultimate size, etc.).
Many of us remember when Howard Oliver use to bring many trusses of rhododendrons to our rhododendron shows. Besides being active in the American Rhododendron Society, Howard Oliver was active in the Camellia Society.
Howard Oliver was responsible for camellias and rhododendrons to be planted in various public places such as the U.S. Geological Survey headquarters in Menlo Park (where he worked), in Los Altos on Edith Avenue a short distance West of San Antonio Boulevard, and at Red Morton Park in Redwood City.
Members of the De Anza Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society, including myself, helped in the planting at Red Morton Park, where there are or were the Rhododendron occidentale Britt Smith and Frank Mossman discoveries R. occidentale SM 29, R. occidentale SM 140, R. occidentale SM 157 (Miniskirt), another plant or Miniskirt or a repeat from the other list), R. occidentale 189 (the Smith / Mossman discovery with the largest flowers), another R. occidentale SM 189 or repeated from the other list), R. occidentale SM 232 (Leonard Frisbee), another plant of Leonard Frisbee or a copy from the other list, R. occidentale SM 602, R. occidentale Pistol Packin Mama, the Leonard Frisbee discovery R. occidentale Rogue River Belle, the Tom Tatum discovery R. occidentale TT 74 Deep Pink (discovered on a Smith / Mossman plant hunting expedition to Stagecoach Hill); the cross of R. occidentale SM 232 x R occidentale SM 189; plant of the East Coast species R. vaseyi, a plant of the northwest species R. albaflorum , R. macrophyllum, R. macrophyllum Seven Devils, and a plant which might be R. macrophyllum Seven Devils.
The above is from two lists which Howard Oliver gave me of the planting locations.
Information on the Britt Smith and Frank Mossman discoveries can be found at:
Camellias were also planted at Red Morton Park, but are not on the lists Howard Oliver gave me.
A friend of Howard Oliver was Cam Ainsworth. Both were active in the Camellia Society and De Anza Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society for many years, and both took part in one of my Rhododendron occidentale plant hunting expeditions to Big Basin Redwoods State Park, and on one of my plant hunting expeditions to -Palomar Mountain State Park.
Last Month Cam Ainsworth called me to talk about my article in the ARS Journal. In talking with Cam Ainsworth I asked if he could recommend a person to give a program on camellias, and Cam Ainsworth recommended a program by Yuri Panchul.
This should be a program which should not be missed.
Information on Yuri Panchul can be found at:
There will be a premeeting dinner with Yuri Panchul at Ristoranye Italiano, 555 Soquel Avenue, Santa Cruz at 5:15 PM before the meeting. If you would like to join us please call Jerry Harris at 831-336-5554.
If anyone is willing to to bring cookies and drinks to the meeting please call Jerry Harris at 831-336-5554.

Оффтоп: Фраза дня:
Вы прийдете на наше собрание Американского Общества Рододендронов с моей презентацией?
Несомненно, причем в Ресторанте Итальяно
Несомненно, но только на саму презентацию, без ресторана
Долго ехать в Санта-Круз, рабочий день все-таки, ради Панчула и камелий отгул брать не буду
Я приму участие в какой-нибудь выставке камелий
Мысленно с вами
Из-за бугра плюете?
