Yesterday I went exploring along the riparian zone of the Flood Creek willow forest. I saw some interesting stuff which will be part of an upcoming post, but I also found a plant I hadn’t seen there before. It looks familiar, but I can’t name it for sure. I’d guess rhododendron, but not certain about the serrated leaves.
I’m worried it might be invasive and going to take over the whole world!
No, I’m actually just kidding.
Can anyone provide a positive ID? Have you seen this plant? Did it escape from your garden? Or did you set it free?
Here are four photos. Click the images to see them a bit bigger. Some of the glossiness of the leaves is due to honeydew from aphids on willows above.
