Seaview Sunset

Very keen to show you this beautiful rhododendron that we photographed at our wonderful local plant nursery in Tapanui when we visited on Saturday 19 October. The colour of the blooms is sensational! Blue Mountain Nurseries, Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

Rhodo Seaview Sunset

Available at Blue Mountain Nurseries, Tapanui.





From the sign it appears that the flowers mature pure yellow.. this is one fascinating rhododendron!  What do YOU think readers ???

First photo taken by Liz and the rest by Nigel. The first three aren’t edited except for cropping and resizing. We took the photos out in the open yard of the nursery and I think they give a pretty good indication of the colour as we saw it. — Liz

    1. PS. I follow a NZ twitter a/c where they have a different farmer each week who takes over the a/c and tweets about their farm. Today a lady who’s on a dairy farm not far from us has taken over. I already follow her personal a/c and she’s good – thought you might be interested? She’s done about 5 tweets so far at: (I don’t think you need a twitter login to view tweets). Her name is Anieka.
