[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There are five species of the genus Rhododendron (ERICALES: ERICACEAE) in Turkiye, plus some hybrid forms.
- Rhododendron luteum,
- Rhododendron ungernii,
- Rhododendron smirnovii,
- Rhododendron caucasium,
- Rhododendron ponticum.

Of these, perennial Rhododendron caucasicum -Beyaz Ormangülü [TR] has been known from Artvin, Erzurum, Kars, Rize, and Trabzon provinces in Northeastern Turkiye. The plant also ranges in the Caucasus. It prefers altitudes of 1830-3000 m. Its flowering time is May to July.
As for etymology (derivatio nominis), Rhododendron came from the Greek: rhodos, "rose", and dendron, "tree"). caucasicum is already refers its distribution area.

Dedications to my dear friend from Malaysia, Foozi Saad (foozi), who is uploaded another species of the genus, becoming a neighbour.

Well captured with good light and shines.

Merhaba Ahmet Bey.

Fotoğrafınla memlekete gittiiim geldim bir :) İyi geldi vallahi, çok da özlemişim. Gerçi pembesini veya morunu tercih ederdim bakmak için ama sonuçta bizim "kumar"ı burada senin enfes bakış açın ve çekiminle görmek de çok güzel.

Eline emeğine sağlık. Selam ve sevgiler.

Küçük bir not, Rhodadendronlar Gölcük - İznik arasında yer alan dağda da yetişiyor. Menekşe yaylası denen yerden bir arkadaş buraya daha önce mor kumar yüklemişti bahsettiğim yöreden.

Hello Ahmet,
I like your flower-pictures a lot. They always have so fine colors and are well presented. Beautiful Rhododendron caucasium with its immaculate color. Very pleasing green background, perfect complement to the white flowers.
A nice dedication to our friend Foozi.
Kind regards
Anne

Hallo Ahmet
So simple and basic, yet so beautiful and striking. The different colours of this flower great to look at and a feast to the eye, especially the anthers that looks like tiny goldens balls. I like the very close approach; it makes the detail more visible and appreciative. This is really beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

ponticum türünü çok gördüm ama bu başka bir güzel Ahmet Hocam, elinize sağlık,isminin Yunancadan geldigini ogrenmek de guzel oldu, notlara yine bayıldım, teşekkürler

Bonjour Ahmet,
Très bonne maîtrise des hautes lumières permettant d'apprecier la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
