Blooming Flame Azalea & Purple Rhododendron

Leave a comment
This year’s rainy Spring has produced a multitude of blossoms on our Flame Azalea. A native shrub, this Rhododendron calendulaceum is about 8′ tall and 8′ wide and has brilliant flowers of varying shades of yellow & orange – a spectacular display from the dining room window.
Another huge color show comes to you courtesy of large stands of purple hybrid rhododendron growing on the North side of the Inn building (and all over town). The Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia) and the huge native Rhododendron (Rhododendron maximum) will be out soon and we’ll post photos for all of you who’ve asked about the difference, so stay tuned. Highlands has never looked more lush and beautiful. Come take it all “Inn!”
