If you comply with that old saying, “Stop and smell the flowers,” you stand a good chance of discovering that our rhododendrons are beautiful, not only in my yard but all over town. They are unusually beautiful. I have never seen them this lovely.
Check out the multi-colored blossoms. My closet Master Gardner tells me the color difference is based on the various levels of maturity for each blossom. The blossoms are so prolific, they have managed to block my view of most of the green part of the plant you would normally see.
When you are driving around town or better yet walking around your own yard, look for extra beauty.
