R. vaseyi (før i Rhodora sektionen, nu sammen med R. albrechtii i Sciadorhodion). H. Eiberg 1997
En smuk, opretvoksende og letbygget løvfældende art, som er een af mine absolutte favoritter. Blomstrer fra ganske ung alder i sarte pastelrosa til mere dybrosa, sommerfuglelignende flade blomster med lange støvdragere. Der findes også en smuk, renhvid form. Får ofte en smuk rød høstfarve. Ø-USA Tue Jørgensen
R. vaseyi er ikke tæt beslægtet med R. canadense (pga dybt delt krone) og det er vist uvidenhed at den står opført i sektionen Rhodora
At de to arter ikke er beslægtede blev allerede vist i 1997-8 af H. Eiberg

R. x vanhoeffeni Til V R. venator
On the Blue Ridge Parkway, R. vaseyi is only found for about 17 miles near Mount Pisgah and it is very thick at milepost #425. There are a number of places to park including overlooks and wide road shoulders where you can pull off the Parkway and easily admire the plants up close. Rt. 215 crosses the BRP at Beech Gap in that stretch, and as the road heads south down the mountain, the vaseyi is exceptionally diverse and quite nice until you get below 4000 ft in elevation. There is a big level area where you can park on 215, but the road is narrow with very little shoulder room so you must be very careful about traffic while gawking at the plants. To the north on 215 from Beech Gap, there seems to be little or no vaseyi. We don't know why. There are a couple of other areas in North Carolina with vaseyi including the Grandfather Mountain area which is much farther north on the BRP. There is some at Waterrock Knob which is at MP 451 on the Parkway and probably the highest in elevation close to 6000 ft. There are some other mountaintops south of Pisgah including Pilot Mountain and Mt. Toxaway that have very nice populations. Pilot Mountain is accessed by a wilderness trail and is quite pristine. Mt. Toxaway is rather heavily developed with high end retirement homes. There is the Southern Highlands Reserve arboretum and research center on the very top but access to that is limited. Gorgeous place! https://southernhighlandsreserve.org/ Donald Hyatt
