Rhododendrons, Lilacs and Bird-on-wing.


Rhododendron


White Lilacs


Bird-on-wing. Named for the appearance of a bird on wing. Although it appears orchid like it is not an orchid. It is found in pine forests. This photo was taken at the appropriately named Pine Haven Resort Minocqua WI.

i'm trying to grow a yellow lilac..never knew there was such a thing til a coworker told me. i have white and purple too, but my yellow one is only a few inches tall at best so only time will tell....love that they bloom just in time for mother's day (for mom each year i bring a vase full) but too bad they only last a short time..oh well, it's worth the wait and i enjoy them while they last!
