Pacific Rhododendron, the state flower of Washington is a stable to any NW garden. It can be found west of the Cascades from southern British Columbia to Northern California. It thrives in wet costal forests, making it tolerant to salt spray and great for erosion control for steep hillsides.  Its large showy flowers attract pollinators just as beautiful as all its cultivated varieties.
