Azalea & Rhododendron Blossoms Gallery
Here is a late March close-up of one of Rhododendron yungninense
small lavender-blue trusses.
It is a reliable heavy bloomer in a sunny location.
These three photos are from the end of March 2004; byt the bulk of its
blooming period is in early April, with some buds still opening afresh
for a couple of weeks after the main flowering is finished.
When this shrub was first planted
in this spot under a cherry tree three years earlier, it had lots & lots of sun.
But the cherry, the box hebe, & the diablo ninebark nearby became began
to crowd & shade it. So a bit after it was finished blooming
I moved it to a sunnier location, where it resettled quickly
& put out lots of new foliage.
For a great deal more about this shrub, see the primary
