Azalea & Rhododendron Blossoms Gallery
This April photo gives an idea of how very small
this rhody is, these two young shrubs being
no taller than little bunchberries.
As this early April close-up conveys, the bright pink
freckled, rather flat trumpets are fairly large
comparated to the leaves & height.
Here it is the year before (in 2003), with its
early April buds like soft little pillows .
A week later the little pillows are opening into bloom,
& already producing new sage-green leaves.
