Rhododendron variety


By Bernard

Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom Gb

I'm sure it will be incredibly difficult because of the enormous number of varieties there are, but if anyone knows the variety of this Rhododendron , I would be delighted to know.

On plant Rhododendron




Rhododendron russatum is a medium sized rhododendron with a flower/leaf size ratio similar to yours, Bernard. Are the underside of the leaves a reddish brown colour? I don't know if there are any cultivars from this Rhody.

It is difficult to see from the photo but is the flower a double one? There are a couple of double-flowered rhodos I have seen - R.fastuosum 'Flore Pleno' and a double form of R.ponticum

Reading Andrfew's respnonse I thought 'double - nah'. Looking again it just might have an inner ring of petals?

I have reposted this question with a close-up of one of the flowers. The leaves are light green on the underneath.
