Rhododendron mucronulatum flowering on Korean Hill



Actually one of these was collected in Japan, the bottom one, and the other in Korea. They're a little late this year; they often flower a month or more earlier. For that reason, I used to try and sneak one into designs. I like to include a surprise or two in a design and flowers in February hereabouts are a surprise to most people.

Gorgeous! I am adding that one to my list. I bet the Rhododendron Species Foundation up in Seattle has one. (Crossing fingers.)
