Comment
Rhododendron hybrids are native to the Northern Hemisphere, and are shrubs of hardy evergreen broad-leaved trees of the Azalea Azalea. I put a flower similar to azalea around the branch to a spherical shape. The leaves are shiny, rounded and elongated, and they come round. It is used for street trees and others. It is said to be a prefectural flower in Fukushima prefecture and Shiga prefecture, and Laligrass (scientific name: Rhododendron arboreum) is regarded as the national flower of Nepal. It is treated as a poisonous plant because the leaves contain load toxin and become toxin poison.There are several flower language. Here we will pick up "solemnity". Because the original species of it was native to alpine zones such as Himalayas, it was attached from glamor and divinity.
