Rhododendron javanicum is a plant in the family Ericaceae, native to Southeast Asia. As many other rhododendrons, it is grown for its brightly colored flowers. This species had only recently been introduced to Europe at the time of publication and it was said to be natural, that is, it hadn’t been crossbred with any greenhouse species or variety.
