I'm looking for a source from which to buy R. mucronatum var mucronatum 'Winter Sunset', also R. X 'Olive'. Does anyone know of a source selling either of them? Thank you.
R. mucronatum var mucronatum "Winter Sunset" is an evergreen azalea. Can't find a source for it.
"Olive" (moupinense x dauricum)
4-5 ft., -15F, VE, 3/3, Lepidote. Flower orchid pink, darker spots scattered over the base of the upper lobe; blossoms held singly or in twos. Upright, and vigorous plant. One of the first to bloom. Stirling Maxwell. A.M. 1942.
It is listed by http://www.sonomahort.com/hybrid.htm
My 'Olive' is blooming now. I pruned it for an 'open' look, because of it's location.
Wish I had some extras for you Hallerlake. :-)
June is a good time to take cuttings of early bloomers. Maybe get some starts then.
Thanks for the tip. Guess I'll try to do then.
I thought bArb and I were going to come see you in June.
I hope so.
