misidentified

According to MRH's comments about photo 304229 in the Rhododenrons album, you made a mistake identifying this flower:

" The plant in the photo appears to be from the composit (Asteraceae) family. Rhododendron prunifolium is very different. Here is a link with a photo:

Re: misidentified

Shoot. My apologies for that. The person I was on the hike with was really knowledgable about plants. It is possible I put the name of the plant to the wrong picture.
