Imagine all the Walking Sticks

Did you know that....

Principally, rhododendrons are used as landscaping plants and many hybrid varieties are available. Artists and craftspeople also use the hard, twisted wood in making walking sticks and freeform furniture.

Yeah, that NC house we've been discussing uses rhododedron in its hand-carved stair railings. Perhaps I've been overlooking the commercial possibilities!

According to HGTV

It's also best to prune rhododendrons when they are in bloom. A rhododendron's cut flowers will last a week or more in a container of water.
