Rhododendron macrophyllum, state flower of Washington. Once again, we saw the flowering cycle as very elevation dependent, with the first flowers being observed at about 1000 meters elevation., along with new leaves.

This was an example of Phenology: which "is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate, as well as habitat factors (such as elevation). "
