Rhododendron scabrifolium v. spiciferum

I think of these smaller bushes with smaller flowers as Azaleas, but I guess this is a Rhododendron. So many of these Rhododendrons are now in bloom at the UC Botanical Garden! It is not even winter yet! I guess when the rains start falling, some plants think it is time to get serious about reproduction. I could find nothing about this plant besides its description, so I will just say, it is beautiful to see all the flowres among the beautiful fall leaves.
