Red Rhododendron

On my walk to pick up my daughter from school the other day, I was amazed by the many varieties of ¬†rhododendrons blooming in my neighbors’ yards.

Rhododendrons grow best in mild and moist climates which is why they do especially well here in the Pacific Northwest. I did not realize that there are more than 850 different natural species in the Rhododendron genus. They also vary greatly in size and shape from short ground covers to Rhododendron trees more than 100 feet tall.
