Rhododendron albiflorum is a ubiquitous plant of the subalpine forests of the Pacific region from British Columbia to Oregon and as far east as Montana.  In some locations it makes virtually impenetrable stands and is aptly nicknamed Hiker’s misery. Often quite sparsely flowered, our feature plant is one of superb quality and worthy of a location in any garden, that is if someone could figure out how to grow this species in a garden setting. Although the flowers of this rhododendron species are almost invariably a creamy white, an interesting colour variant in which the flowers are tipped pink is also found in this area.


 


Rhododendron albiflorum is the most common native rhododendron in British Columbia.
