How unusual, is this rhododendron? I haven't seen a doubble bud and definitely not one that will bloom in autumn.;) How enchanting.;)

Paula, the whole bush is full of buds. I was so surprised and thrilled when I saw it.

Zuzana, it's a rhododendron, yes. There are over 28000 cultivars (says Wikipedia) with different blooming seasons so if you pick the right ones, you can have flowers almost all year.

That's a pretty one! The leaves are just changing colors here but we don't have any flowers at all. All ours come in the spring.

Max, our autumn has been short and unspectacular this year, which is why it's such a delight to see the flowers. Get a rhododendron! :-)

Get a rhododendron! :-)

I would but the soil around here is terrible. Lots of red clay that turns rock hard during any kind of dry spell.
