Can you guess what flower these buds will become?

Couldn't get too close to this one before it flew away:

I still have to experiment with resolution.
Do any of you use Tiff?

Looks somewhat like a rhododendron, but there are no leaves.

You're good, Eric.
It's a type of Rhododendron, but has no leaves yet because it's a deciduous Azalea, 'Northern Lights'.

Here's a cut out I made a couple years ago:

Sorry about the blurriness, but clarity got lost when I downsized. The original would have taken too long to load.

Julie,

That has a great salmon color. What's the name of the Azlea?

OMG...I'm not kidding, I was thinking it may be a decidious azalea, but didn't post it because I wasn't sure what grew where you live. LoL

Eric, it's labeled Rhododendren x 'Northern Lights'.
It's one of the few that are hardy this far north.
I don't grow Rhododendrons that have evergreen foliage, because winter winds and sun would damage the leaves.
Jean, you must have a much larger variety of Azaleas available to grow in your milder climate.
