25.03.2018 Escambia Delta (FL, Santa Rosa & Escambia Co.)

The best place to see R. austrinum in its full richness and variability is the Escambia delta with its many river arms near Pensacola. The same wealth can be admired a little further upstream as well. Since the plants usually grow along the slightly elevated riverbanks and often overhang the water they can be admired only by boat. Normally access from land is impossible. Peak flowering is approximately during the last one and a half weeks in March and the first one and a half weeks in April. Here I present photographs from my second trip with Ron Miller (Pensacola) to this wonderland. Since this took place two and a half weeks earlier than in 2017 the blooming was now at its absolute peak. All Rhododendron shown here are R. austrinum. This is why I abstain from captions in these cases.
