This guy started blooming for me last week. It was grown from seed but I lost the information. The flower is huge.
Also a noid azalea, originally thought to be naughty lady but it is way too red.
Wow, that is a gorgeous Rhodi! We have a Rhododendron Maximus and it was blooming a couple weeks ago too. It's a younger plant though so we only get a couple blooms a year. It's white too but the blooms are oddly tiny for a larger Rhodi.
