I love 'Mary Fleming.' My search indicates it is a lepitode Rhododendron hybridized by Nearing, parents being R. keiskei and R. racemosum. I have one in front of our house and one in back. It may not get noticed by everyone but I love how its bronzy evergreen leaves make a nice contrast in my shrub borders, and the spring blooms also balance everything else very well. I love how well it thrives on my total neglect. Wish I could say that for my other rhodies.
