The Potomac Valley Chapter ARS was started by a small group of individuals in the Washington D.C. area, many of which
already belonged to the Middle Atlantic Chapter ARS. It is one of three chapters of
the American Rhododendron Society
located in District IX, or the Middle Atlantic region of the United States.
