In Bloom

February 5, 2014

Rhododendron x giraldii

Plant name: Rhododendron X geraldii

Location: Hillside

Plant notes: After the rains in the early spring months, our hillside is covered in large pink blossoms. Rhododendron X geraldii is a hybrid between R. sutchuenense and R. praevernum that appears in garden collections. We have seven specimens on the hillside along the path down to the meadow. Presumably, these specimens were raised from seed of R. sutchuenense obtained from a collection where it had crossed with R. praevernum. We expect to see them begin to bloom very soon.
