It's Pink Saturday again, and I want to show you the rhododendrons that are blooming in the back of our house next to the patio. This variety is Nova Zembla. We had this variety at our home in Staunton and wanted to add this color when we moved to to Applejack Lane.
It is too bad these cannot survive in the front of the house. They make such a stunning display, but the heat of the sun there would just sizzle them.
The blooms will only last about two weeks. Then, the rains seem to wash them away. That's when the deadheading begins, and we prepare for next year's bloom. Happy Pink Saturday!
