Since I’m not the Gardener, I can’t really tell if this is an azalea or a rhododendron. Project Spectrum 5 has started, with red as the first color. [And, somehow, I lost the rest of this post, so I’m typing like mad to reinsert the quote I found, at least.]

“Bees and butterflies are generally not attracted to red flowers because they lack visual sensitivity to that color.” David Lee. Nature’s Palette: The Science of Plant Color. Published by University of Chicago Press, 2007.
