Issue Date: January 10, 2012
On January 10, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued nine new stamps featuring Rhododendrons. Rhododendrons are considered to be some of the most beautiful flowers in the entire
world, and come in many varieties. For instance, R. fictolacteum bears creamy white blossoms splashed with scarlet. R. fortunei exhibits clusters of multi-petaled flowers from its slender
stalks. R. agglutinatum bears shocks of reddish-pink flowers that stand out against its rich green leaves. R. delavayi forms dense thickets of ground cover bearing flowers of white, pink or red,
while R. wardii is a yellow-flowered species. R. molle is native to the plateaus and highlands of Asia. R. giganteum is known for its size and beauty, while the broad, funnel-shaped blossoms of
R. simsii range in color from rose to dark red. Rhododendrons, including R. rex, are propagated chiefly by cutting.
