Rhododendron 1 San Francisco Botanical garden.: I would like to share some Rhododendrons captured from SFO Botanical garden in Jun 2011.
There were so many of them in the Rhododendron section including many hybrids I couldnt record the names of many.
I just went on capturing them in my camera. Initially was reluctant to post them.
I think this one is Rhododendron griffithianum.
Very nice photograph … For some days I was thinking of starting a series of my California photographs. You have provided me further temptation.
