In the present study, fluorescent AFLP was used to assess the genetic conformity in a breeders gene pool of evergreen azaleas. Aims were twofold: 1.) evaluate the correspondence between classifications based on pedigree data and on AFLP marker data for a well characterised breeding gene pool of pot azaleas, and 2.) assess the genetic relationships between pot azaleas, Japanese azaleas and their supposed ancestor species from the Rhododendron subgenus Tsutsusi.
