  1. Um…some sort of deciduous azalea, yes? I don’t know them well enough to guess at a species, though. Pretty photo!

  2. Looks like a rhododendron to me. Or possibly an azalea?

  3. My guess is that it is a rhododendron.

  4. It’s a deciduous azalea/rhododendron. I would bet that it’s a hybrid one rather than a straight native species. From the color it probably has calendulaceum or austrinum in its parentage.
