November & January portraits of
Rhododendron campylogynum var cremastum

   

Cremastum

The East Asian & Tibetan alpine dwarf
Rhododendron campylogynum var. cremastum
turns golden yellow in autumn, yet drops very few
of its leaves, which turn back to green in spring.


Cremastum

There is also just a bit of red in the autumn color.
This happens to be one of the more amazingly flowered
of the species rhodies, but it's beauty as a little
specimen-shrub is certainly heightened by its
"second flowering" of autumn color.


Cremastum

It drops very few leaves even in winter,
which by late December or January turn darkly chocolaty,
for a final variation in beautiful colorations
before beginning to regain its green come spring.
