Spider??? I do not know the name.
Do you mean swamp azalea or deciduous?
Stem cutting at 5 to 6 inches, root cutting & layering work well also.
You should do a search on GW to find more threads on this.

From the link bobby provided:

When first introduced to western gardens in 1980, it was known as Rhododendron macrosepalum 'Linearifolium.' That is now ammended to R. stenopetalum 'Linearifolium.'
