Fun Fact: Rhododendrons Close Relatives of Madrona

Madrona Tree SculptureI came across this gardening article by Ciscoe when something caught my eye: rhododendrons are close relatives of madrona.  I never thought about it, but it makes sense.  I also came to the realization that Ciscoe is much more entertaining on television than in print.

Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood was named after the madrona trees in the woods across from Madrona Beach.
