Firstly, I would like to thank CarolG for honouring me with her User Award on "Poppy Pair".

Another rhododendron picture, again taken at Exbury Gardens, this time a pair of pink ones. With some foliage, but no stemWink, sorry Karen.
This showy, ornamental plant with its many clusters of large flowers is the National Flower of Nepal.
It is extensively hybridized in cultivation and can be a shrub or a tall tree, "rhodos" means rose and "dendron" means tree.

Thankyou for your continued interest in my flower series, and for your votes and comments.

Pamela.

Pure class Pamela, love the colours and presentation. It is a great shame that they are such an invasive species, I remember many days spent trying to eradicate them from the Penryn Estate near Bangor, North Wales when I used to work for the National Trust as a gardener in the summer after I'd completed my A levels. Many years ago now!
