They look like rhododendrons to me. I have a couple that have flowers with exactly that color. They've been in bloom for a couple of weeks now in Maryland. This year was a bit early for them, due to the mild winter no doubt.


(whispers) they ARE gorgeous!

They look like Rhodos to me, too -- when we lived in Victoria, BC they were always one of the earlier flowers to bloom, and they bloomed all summer. Here in Saskatchewan, the plants just don't last through the winter unfortunately.
As I recall, they mainly come in white or blue or a sort of dark pink colour, with some variations also in the appearance of the blooms depending on the variety, but the rounded flower at the end of each stalk is typical.

Judging from the leaves and stems, they're rhododendrons.
I'm envious; where I live, it takes a pretty skilled gardener and frequent attention to get them to flourish (we have very alkaline, clay-ey, compact soil)
