Two Season Rhododendron

Lepidote rhododendrons are certainly stars of our early spring garden; Rhododendron Pink Diamond is pretty spectacular in the late fall, too. Most lepidotes (small-leaved rhododendrons) are essentially evergreen, but Pink Diamond is pretty much deciduous, and as this picture from last week shows, it develops very nice color, equal to many better-known fall foliage shrubs. In the spring it is covered by large frilly pink flowers.

I just checked out the Johnson County Heritage Trust. :-)
It is a really good cause in a county that is trying to turn into one big housing development.
