Fresh Rhododendrons Bloom for Your Collection

Canada Post has issued two 54-cent stamps featuring rhododendrons.

Stamp designer Isabelle Toussaint took photographs of the plants at the 2008 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada exhibition in Kentville, Nova Scotia.

The first Canadian stamps depicting flowers were issued in 1964 under the name "Floral Emblems" as a series of 14 stamps for each province and territory that featured their coats-of-arms and respective flowers. Since then, flowers have been blooming throughout the Canada Post Stamp Program as they are a beautiful addition to any mailing.
