Rhododendrons make up an incredibly diverse group of plants, originating from many parts of the Northern hemisphere with a large concentration in China and the Himalayas. They vary from tiny ground covering plants to species growing as understory plants in forests. Most flower in early spring, although some bloom for a brief period in autumn.
