When they’re ready,they really do pop, don’t they! I love them when they are tight cones just waiting to burst out.
these are actually mountain laurel. though i grew up in the heart of rhodie country, i didn’t see my first mountain laurel until only about a month ago. my wife and i thought they were so cool, that we now have 3 in our yards to go with our many rhodies. My favorite is the arctic glow. They have a fragrance that fills the entire yard when blooming.
rhodies and mountain laurel are in the heath family (ericaceae.) extending out plant classification and azalea and a little wider and blueberries are included.
Thanks so much! I LOVE to learn a new plant name (common and proper!). The bloom didn’t look quite right for a rhodie but it was in amongst some and the leaf was trying to pass itself off. Wow blueberries too! Who knew?! And now I do. Thanks again!

sometimes, i struggle with writing something like that for fear of coming off as too pretentious or a know-it-all.
i myself, thought it was a rhodie. the leaves, branches and trunk screamed rhodie. the flowers didn’t quite work, but i figured close enough. it’s only when my wife showed a picture of the flower to a friend did i find out what it was. so, you’re in very good company for miscategorizing the plant.
That was a right good rhodi sound–more sounds, please
Oops laurel…I didn’t quite think that was a rhodi…but color and sound is still a great pairing
Certainly is a pink pop pop! 🙂
I hope you could visit my site too and give feedback on how i can improve my works. 😊 thanks😊
