The Hawaii Chapter
of the
American Rhododendron Society



Also known as the "Vireya" club, the Hawaii Chapter -ARS  has over 100 members worldwide.  The chapter is based on the Big Island of Hawaii in the city of Hilo.  Members meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month.  A typical meeting consists of a pot luck lunch at 12 pm with some of the best desserts in Hilo followed by a meeting at 1 pm.  Regular activities include a silent auction, a plant auction, and a vireya truss give-away.

The club's monthly newsletter "Viva Vireya" is well worth the ARS membership fee of $35 for the year as an added bonus to other benefits such as the
ARS Journal..    Or, you can receive our monthly newsletter only, no ARS membership, for $15 per year.

The Hawaii Chapter also handles the vireya seed distribution exchange. 
Hybridizers from around the world send seed for redistribution.  Seeds are $1 a packet.  A helpful aid also available is a paper on vireya seed germination , written by Mr. Bill Moyles, also for $1.  Contact me for the latest seed list
