Rhododendrons, Azaleas

Red Rhododendrons
Apricot Azaleas

Rhododendrons grow wild here, 30 and 40 feet tall, are evergreen, and are the state flower.
Rhodies set their blooms in fall for the next spring.
Azaleas are a cousin, come in more colors, are domestic, but lose their leaves in winter.
Azaleas don't seem to grow as large either.
Both are pretty in bloom, though!

So very nice! Our azaleas have pretty much lost their blossoms - some time ago, in fact...we've got lots in the yard, though, and they give a lot of color for several months!
