Fellow Gardeners-

I have completed a project begun over a year ago by placing at the NCSU
Arboretum WWW site images selected by the late J. C. Raulston from his
extensive slide collection. They were scanned by Dr. Alice Russell, also on
Horticulture Department faculty, with the assistance of Miguel Buendia, a
computer programmer in the horticulture department.

They are images of "The NCSU Arboretum Plant Cultivar Introductions" at


and of "The N. C. Association of Nurserymen and NCSU Arboretum Program for
Superior Plant Promotion Candidates" at


The plants are listed below. Enjoy, remember and be grateful for the man
without whom we would probably not have the opportunity to enjoy these
