Rhodies, (pronounced 'roadie') as we call them, are a highly used landscaping ornamental in gardens of the Pacific Northwest--also growing in the wild too. What's a rhody, you ask? It's an evergreen shrub---can reach small tree size, a member of the heath family. It has rounded clusters of showy, pink, purple or white flowers and large, smooth oval oblong leaves on it's woody frame.
Our Spring can be very showy with all the rhodies! This particular one starts out with pink buds and opens nearly white! Enjoy!
