Rhododendrons are native to Australia, North America, Europe, and Asia. More than 1,000 species have been named. The most common types of rhododendron in American gardens are shrubs that grow about 6 feet tall. Rhododendrons are known for their large, showy flower clusters that range from pure white to deep burgundy. Flowers have 10 anthers, which are small reproductive structures found in the center of the flower. Plants can be deciduous or evergreen depending on the climate.
