Rhododendron "Cunningham's White"


According to Wikipedia,

Rhododendron (from the Greek: rhodos, "rose"; dendron, "tree") is a genus of flowering plants in the family Ericaceae. It is a large genus with over 600 species. They may be either evergreen or deciduous, and most have showy flower displays. It includes the plants known to gardeners as azalea.
Most species prefer acidic soil conditions without drought and not too much sun, so it is no wonder that they are found in great abundance in Western Norway. Bergen is famous for its large variety of big and well-kept rhododendrons. However, the one on the picture is one of my own.
