Hi can any1tell me if these are flower buds on my baby Rhododendron?It came from an Adult plant as a layered cutting i took last year?

On plant Rhododendron




They look more like new growth points to me, rather than flowerbuds. Rhodo flowers apear at the eand of the branches rather than in the axils like tho picture shows.

hi Jac, yes i would agree with Owdboggy, i bought several rhodo's last year and not one of them flowered, but they did all nearly double in size from this sort of bud, but looks like there are lots of top buds this year !!!! cant wait!
