I was so excited to see that Douglas Justice's November in the Garden 2021 - UBC Botanical Garden features rhododendron leaves, and even features several of them in the same location. But I had a little less fun than I was expecting, not only because of the rain, but really, it's harder with just leaves to figure out which ones might be the ones I'm supposed to be looking for, in spite of the good descriptions and lots of good photos, but I didn't have those with me. My first guess was Rhododendron micranthum - did "diminutive" refer to the size of the plant or of the leaves? When I stopped looking for something along the ground and came across one a little over my height with small leaves, Ben Stormes came along to help me look for the label, which he found right away, though I'd been looking for five minutes. We agreed on the spicy aroma. I finally found the label on R. recurvoides, which until I found the label for sure I'd have posted as a different one in the blog, as I thought the indumentum looked just like described interrupted indumentum photo for that one. I ran into Linda Layne, who is working on trees for the winter, taking a break from the Food Garden. She told me about the azalea grove on what I'd have called the north side of Upper Asian Way, which she'd have called the west side but which my compass showed to be the east side. Really, if a whole bunch of plants are described as east of Kingdon Ward, so going east on Upper Asian Way, but two plants are described as east of Upper Asian Way, how would I know which way to turn? [Edited - I was confused about what I was looking for here, have removed some of what I wrote.] Linda pointed out the R. schlippenbachii that are mentioned in the blog, which saved me some time - garden hours are now 10-2! I've never even been there before 1pm. I only found one of the group of R. wallichii bordering Wharton Glade near Upper Asian Way, and that after I started looking at every new and leafless plant in the area. This poor thing is not what I was expecting, but from Garden Explorer, it seems there are better examples. So you get lots of photos, because it took me a long time to find this. Edited: Douglas says the group of plants is in the bed in Wharton Glade closest to Ludlow Trail and Upper Asian Way.
