Self thinks this is a rhododendron. A giant rhododendron. Either that or a giant azalea (lol) She dropped by the Mendocino Coast Botanic Garden this morning, and everything — azaleas, magnolias, rhododendron — were in bloom.
This neon pink bush was a few yards from the main entrance. They sell rhododendron in the nursery (and they now have a café!)
