of Autumn Azaleas & Rhododendrons
(Similar to) 'Mount Saint Helens'
This hybridized Flame Azalea (Rhododendron calendulaceum)
is probably, though not certainly, the cultivar 'Mount St Helens,'
shown here in October as its deciduous leaves are
turning purple & red.
Here's a close up of its leaves on Halloween. It varies in colors
from year to year depending I presume on temperatures &
other experiences throughout the year.
Oh how very jolly this photo also snapped on Halloween 2003.
By mid to late November the leaves will all be gone.
Something's been nibbling on the leaves seen in this photo from
September 2004, when the shrub turned pinker than for most years.
