|Rhododendron luteum |
This deciduous azaleas is in Section Pentanthera. The geographical distribution of the species in Pentanthera reflects the antiquity of these azaleas; 12 are found in eastern North America, 1 in western North America, I in eastern Asia, and 1, R. luteum, in the Caucasus. Significantly, R. luteum is most closely related to R. occidentale from the West Coast and R. austrinum from the southeastern United States. How those landmasses move about! R. luteum is native in the Ukraine and the Caucasus, along the Turkish coast of the Black Sea and is found in some disjunct populations in what was Yugoslavia and in Poland.

I am glad to see this species here. Wild Rhododendrons are not very often photographed, maybe due their environment were are growing: hight mountains. Well done!
Agréable macro valorisant bien le sujet malgré une très légère insuffisance de profondeur de champp.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
