The Azalea collection is blooming. One of the best on the bank is Rhododendron luteum, reliable to flower, full of mid yellow blooms and the scent drifting through the lawn. These plants grow through S.E. Europe, Turkey and the Caucasus. Strong growing, deciduous, much branching shrubs. The flowers are followed by elongated seed capsules full of seed, much of which may be viable and can subsequently lead to self-seeding.
