        The following key for the classification of trusses to be entered in all American Rhododendron Society Shows fills a long wanted need. Under the previous schedules used at Society exhibitions many of the older but still very fine hybrids could not be entered in competition against newer and clearer colored trusses. It is hoped that exhibitors will use the key in making their entries at the Show. By simply looking up the name of the hybrid in the key, the classes under which the truss can be entered.
