Summer blooming Rhody

This one is blooming now and I don't know the name of it.
It is about 15 ft. tall and over 20 ft. wide. I got it in a trade years ago.
Rhododendron
The smaller leaves are from a Pieris that sprouted in an old stump.

RE: Summer blooming Rhody

Even for this somewhat moribund forum I'm surprised you haven't gotten a response yet.
I'd guess it's probably one of the R. auriculatum hybrids, such as 'Aladdin', discussed in the 4th paragraph here:

oops

I meant to say Aladdin was another possible hybrid not mentioned on that page. I think it's actually more common in the PNW than several of the ones listed, as I've seen it in Greer's catalog several times.

I noticed it, very pretty as are all his plantings I suspect :)

I didn't comment yet, hadn't wanted to bump it down out of the way before others could view....

And I don't know what it is, but thanks for sharing the photo.
