      Hi Dave,

       

      Look under Rhododendron species.  It would be R. obtusum var. amoenum.  But it is not currently on our website as we ran out of plants large enough to sell, though we do now have plants large enough to sell, though since supply is short, we will probably not put it back on the website until the rest of the crop get large enough.  Though as I said we have had it available most of the time.

       

      Thanks for your contact, and know I never want to push my business to the azalea web members.  I only want to share information.

      Harold,

       

      Thanks for coming forward with that information--I had neglected to check your catalog, and have never seen it in a chapter plant sale etc. I must admit I haven't made a serious attempt to propagate it.....

      Barry,

       

      We used to have an amoenum in No VA, probably still do have it in that garden. There is (was, at least) a very nice specimen in the National Arboretum. I haven't seen them for sale ever, including at ASA plant sales.  I don't remember where we got ours in No VA, probably a local grower. If someone has one, cuttings would be nice things to grow and put in a plant sale to keep this gem alive and available.

       

      Our correspondent Christine might do with an intro to propagation by cuttings, for that matter--might be by far the easist way for her to get more plants of this variety.

       

      Dave

      Hi,
      It's always hard to tell color in photos, but if the flowers are
      actually a little more purple than the pictures show and appear earlier
      than most azaleas do then they might be Amoenum.
      Good luck,
      Barry
