Thank you Hywel. Because of its colour I planted it (4years ago) beside a yellow magnolia but this year their blooming period was off, The magnolia is mainly over and rhododendron is "just" in full bloom. Maybe next year they will bloom together again.

That's one spectacular display of flowers! I wish I could grow Rhododendrons well here in San Diego!

Thanks everyone for liking.
These bloom for about one month. Most of my flowering shrubs bloom about that long. Not long enough :=) I always look for interesting foliage as well ....(which deer would not eat).... and I can enjoy year round.

wow, I love it. Is this a large growing variety? I need to replace one in front of my house but don't want it too big.

Potentially larger than you would want Bathgate.
