Look out for Rhododendron siderophyllum planted at the bottom of the Chinese hillside. A small plant with evergreen leaves that give off an aromatic smell when touched or following a rainstorm. Flowers are a pink bud opening pink and fading to white. The tubular corolla opens out to spread petals and stamens of uneven length. A change from the large trusses of blooms often associated with the genus Rhododendron at this time of year. Collected on hillsides near Kunming, Yunnan, China at 2300m.
