Rhododendrons grow wild in the Cascade mountains. Naturally, Portland would be well suited for many of the domestic varieties. So, despite the fact that the flowers usually don't last long, this is a very popular plant in many yards in Portland. They are easy to maintain in this climate (plant them in the ground and ignore them for the most part) and provide cover all year long.
You will notice that sometimes the rhodies here get confused. One of the ones I have in my yard had one blossom that opened in June - way too late in the year for normal flowers from these plants. Furthermore, sometimes some of the plants will do a very light blossoming in fall.
Aside of being used to decorate many Portland yards, gardens and parks, there is also a Portland Rhododendron Garden that is a really nice place to visit during the peak season.
