a very beautiful tree, it is a pity this species (R. arboreum) is not hardy in NW Europe, maybe in South England. In the Netherlands Rhododendrons are not invasive, and just shrublike. I do like the especially when you can walk under a high rhododendron.

Nice name 'tree rhododendron' has two times tree in its name.

I agree, this is a common plant in ours countries but this is also a beautiful tree with a special flowering who leaves in mountains places in France. Maybe it's my gardener side who is fascinate ! ;-)

Hi Wim and Sisley,

Very beautiful indeed. I was there in 1981 and do remember these Rhodondendrons very well. I also don't like the invasive Rhododendron ponticum in Europe (they spoil natural oak forests in Scotland and Wales), but these in their natural surroundings are marvellous! I think they were somewhat taller, at least up to 12 and perhaps 15 m. In the literature R. arboreum are normally up to 12 m but sometimes up to 20 m. Some websites write it can become 30 m tall.

Re4gards, Jeroen

Hi Sisley,

It is indeed a very miraculous place. It's a vast wood of solely Rhododendrons and in the meantime there is a view on the Himalaya. It's really a fairytale place. I hated Rhododendrons because all the middle-class people like them, like Azalea's. Nevertheless In the Himalaya it is a very special encountering.

I think that the maximum is about 4oo cm circonference and a height of about 10 metres. At least I haven't seen bigger ones I think. Alltough I must say I am prejudiced and confused, because of the overwhelming impressions you have there. I think the tallest was about 10 metres.

I will put on another picture in which you see the red glow of the Rhododendrons and a very vague vision of the snowy Himalaya.

Nice that you like them.
