Rhododendron tolmachevii


R. tolmachevii

White flowers of Rhododendron tolmachevii are an April delight,
shown here in 2003. This is one of the "Ledums," a family of rhodies
formerly having their own genus, with heavily redolent leaves.
Since the spicy musk is from the evergreen leaves rather than
the flowers, it is a year-round scent, which can be experienced
by even a slight brush against the little shrub.

R. tolmachevii

Here it is one year later, April 2004. The flowers more resemble those of
a hawthorn or choke-berry rather than an azalea or rhododendron,
so it is quite understandable that it would for a long time have
been placed in a separate genus.
