Description

Here's the glorious Pacific Rhododendron, the state flower of Washington. I've posted photos before of this flower, and once again had to include one from a hike up Mt. Zion, as they were so numerous. The shrubs are almost landscaped along the trail, and now in the first week of July they were in full bloom.

Description

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). "

Description

The masses of Pacific Rhododendrons were the most beautiful I've ever seen along the trail up to Mt. Walker. The trail begins at about 800' elevation and continues up to 2805', with Rhodies blooming all along the way under the mixed conifer forest.

Description

The Rhododendron macrophyllum or Pacific Rhododendron is Washington's state flower, and such a gorgeous flower it is! This time of year it's in full bloom along this trail, especially at the beginning at 1,200' elevation. The shrubs grow high overhead, probably to about 20' high, and the flowers are a range of pink shades.
