are these wild rhododendrons?
I took these pictures at about 3500 feet in the mountains in way No Cal. Mostly done blooming, but you can still see a flower cluster in the second picture. My question is - are these wild rhododendrons, or something else? The stand was very large - maybe 15 feet by 10 feet. The blooms were VERY fragrant - smelled to me just like honeysuckle.
Another question - if they are rhododendrons, how can I propagate them? We owns 3 1/2 acres of land that starts about 20 feet away from where these are growing, so I would hope they would grow on our property too, although I have not been able to find any.
Thanks so much for your help, and pls forgive my ignorance - I don't know much about rhododendrons.
