Amazing 125+ Year Old Rhododendron Tree in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada

When reddit user smartforever posted this magnificent picture of an old rhododendron (from Ancient Greek  rhódon “rose” and déndron “tree”) on reddit, he probably made it the most famous rhododendron ever. Most rhododendrons are considered shrubs, but this one definitely could pass for a tree – it’s over 125 years old! You can find it on Google maps (unfortunately, Google Street View car photographed it in the wrong time of the year).

House seems cramped, could convert the 1car garage into a bedroom and put a 2-car garage where the tree is, Rhody wood is great for carving
