Land PREFACE IT is difficult to understand why a book on Rhododendrons, within the means of ordinary gardening folk, has been so long in making its appearance. That there has been a steady and growing demand for such a book is a well-known fact. The reason is probably that there are very few people qualified to write the book, and it is doubly fortunate that Mr. Watson has been induced to undertake the task. No one is better qualified ;no one is more familiar with the cultural requirements of Rhododendrons or has a more thorough knowledge of this interesting genus in all its species, varieties, and hybrids. Mr. Watson has already done much to develop the popular taste for Rhododendrons, and to help and encourage other workers, but by writing the present volume he has earned the gratitude of every cultivator. As to the merits of Rhododendrons there can be no question, and no one who has seen a good collection at flowering time, or who has quietly enjoyed half-an-hour on a bright day in early summer studying the effects of large, mixed clumps of even the commoner and older varieties, will disagree with the statement that they are by far the most valuable of all hardy evergreen flowering shrubs ever introduced. I certainly do not quarrel with it. Of many plants it is said, or has been said, Their day has come.
