Was/is this Rhododendon nudiflorum?
Growing along the creekbed in our back yard.
I'm not sure if there's anything more specific as to what kind of Azaleas this is. It was growing wild in the park.
i found these in my backyard and i noticed that they bloomed a couple days ago and i just had to get a good pic of them
