  1. This is new to me. I read that it can be used as herbal medicine.

    1. Rhododendron tomentosum is poisonous. Usually, it grows on the edges of bogs, forming extensive, fairly uniform growths. Walking through a blooming garden is an experience, not only because of the abundance of flowers, but also because of the intoxicating smell. The smell of it comes from volatile or essential oils, such as ledol, palustrol and myrcene. These compounds cause livestock and large mammals in the wild to leave the plant alone, and can cause headaches for even the most sensitive people. Despite its toxicity, resourceful people have used wort to flavor beer instead of or in addition to hops.

  2. Rhododendron tomentosum is excellent against moths.
    I have never used almonds.
    Have a nice weekend.

  3. They grow in some parts of Norway too. Have a nice weekend!
