As now understood, this genus contains only the two species described below. The name Andromeda has been extensively used for what are now considered to be distinct genera. Shrubs and trees described under this name in old works must be sought under Oxydendrum, Lyonia, and Enkianthus; and under the beautiful names Cassandra, Cassiope, Leucothöe, Pieris, and Zenobia, all published by David Don in 1834.
