Continuing from yesterday’s post, on R572, before turning onto Healy Pass (R574) at Adrigole we stopped to take in this fine rhododendron bank. The massed bloom and color struck us. Happily, after there rhododendron became common.
Later, we were told the plant was considered invasive and needed control.
I turned around and foxglove was right there.

Rhododendron are native. Whoever said that is the invasive one.

Sorry you feel that way, ekurie. It may feel native, though it is an introduced species.
