I see this flower a lot in the public gardens we haunt but have never found a name. I'm hoping my bloggy friends can help with that. :) I was originally convinced that these are NOT rhodos because they are short and bushy-looking and are in a particular sheltered part of Pukeiti Gardens--compared to the abundance of 'regular' rhodos that we see at this time of year. But with some research and all the great comments, I concede that it is a type of rhodo. Thanks, bloggy friends!
