Rhododendron camtschaticum is a very low shrub with large flowers up to two inches across. It grows in tundra and alpine areas of Alaska including the Aleutian Chain, Kodiak Island, and the Seward Peninsula. When blooming, late June in the Nome, large sections of mountain sides turn pink with Rhododendron flowers, in a surreal display of natural beauty.
