The Biggest Rhododendron Bush in Astoria

May 14, 2010

Lee pointed out this rhododendron bush at 15th Street and Exchange as being the biggest rhodie in town. I don't think I'd disagree. It seems the colors tend to bloom at different times. The reds and salmon came out first, then the various pinks and whites. There are some purple rhodies I'm keeping my eye on for future blog posts. They are almost ready. On a rainy day like today with gray skies the past two days, it's good to remember that we sometimes see such a stunningly beautiful, unpolluted blue up above.

The building behind the rhododendron is Angel Medical.

What an amazing rhodie! Do you find they are blooming rather profusely and lushly this year? Ours are!

A powerfully dramatic photo! What a "bush"! Very well composed, Sheryl!

That, quite possibly, is the biggest one in the world.

The rhodie is a stunner... but I wonder if it's blocking a more distant view for its owner...?

Oh my goodness! That is huge and VASTLY beautiful!

Are you sure there is some bigger bush somewhere else?

I refer to that being the biggest 1 I have ever seen. It is a stunner!
