素青色的杜鵑 a greenish rhododendron

this greenish white rhododendron spotted in the botanic garden is not a common type. referring to the information of the gardens’ website, i am yet to identify what kind of rhododendron it is. 在兵頭花園發現這種不常見的杜鵑。對照公園網站的資料也理不出是那種杜鵑:

《香港動植物公園》{hong kong zoological & botanic gardens} 本園栽種有10餘種,包括本地野生品種紅杜鵑 (rhododendron simsii)、錦繡杜鵑 (rhododendron pulchrum), 紫杜鵑 (rhododendron pulchrum var. phoeniceum) 及白杜鵑 (rhododendron mucronatum)。也有一些較罕見的品種,例如黃杜鵑 (rhododendron x molle) 及羊角杜鵑 (rhododendron moulmainense)。

惟學多一點此植物的名字。let’s learn a little about this species.
