I am not generally a lover of Rhododendron but this old hybrid has been a favourite since I spent an afternoon sleeping under a flowering
specimen drinking in the refreshing scent. I have three young plants in the garden, and I'm not expecting flowers any time soon
, but I'm happy to wait. In the meantime, the new growth is quite pleasant in the spring.

The first flowering has arrived earlier than I was expecting. I have a couple of other plants further up in the garden, where it is more exposed,
that are still a few years away from flowering but this is a good start. I should search out some of the other cultivars
because this one was a joy for a couple of weeks.
