I'm posting this as for Appreciation, not for ID, but if anyone wants to comment on the ID, I would love to know it. I just realize how hopeless that seems to be. Still, I've come up with a suspect: Rhododendron 'Washington State Centennial'. See Paghat's Garden: Rhododendron x 'Centennial'. It's yellow with white, deciduous, frilly petal edges, lots of hairs, some orange on the dorsal petal, from around here. I think this is supposed to be lepidote, and I imagine I see scales at dead centre in the second photo. This is on the Ted and Mary Greig Rhododendron Garden in Stanley Park, where there are a lot of fragrant azalea-type rhododendrons in bloom right now.
