The name Rhododendron comes from the greek words "rodon" which means "rose" and "dendron" which means "tree". Rhododendrons are also referred to as the King of Shrubs since they are regarded by many as the best flowering evergreen plants for the temperate landscape.
Different varieties of Rhododendrons are the state flower for both Washington State and West Virginia.
