Photo Challenge: Acadia: May 29

Royal Azalea (1 of 1)
Rhododendron schlippenbachii – Royal Azalea

Asticou Azalea Garden is one of the public gardens managed by the Land and Garden Preserve.  As the name indicates, it is mostly centered around azalea and rhododendron plantings.  There are a number of other unique specimen plants as well including a very nice Acer griseum, an aged Cercidiphyllum japonicum and a beautiful Stewart pseudocamllia.   The Royal Azalea’s were all in full bloom today and with the rainy, cold, cloudy weather it was a great photographic subject.
