Rhododendron means Rose Tree. 
Ancient Greek rhódon "rose", and déndron "tree”

  2. This is wonderful!!! What a lovely place to sit. I love the shape of the garden, it must be quiet there. The color Is so pretty!!! And your macros are stunning, too. I recently took some pictures of one this color, but maybe it was an azalea, I don't know. Anyway, notice how the tips of the stamen are silver?? Very cool.

  4. So colourful, I like these shrubs though they are very invasive in natural woodland.
