I bought this as Rhododendron Kalinka. I have looked at many pics of Kalinka and the leaves look nothing like this. I don't think it is Kalinka. I bought it at Lowe's so I'm not surprised it is misidentified.
I love it anyway. Don't know what the blooms will be like but I love the leaves and suspect it is a yak hybrid.
Does anyone know for sure?

I have also posted this in the PaTI forum.
