Re: [AZ] Seeking Glenn Dale named Puck with "heavy yellowish blotch"
Bob nailed it.
Giving the benefit of the doubt that it isn't mislabeled, there is a normal and acceptable variation within the cultivar which one learns to recognize through experience. White with stripes flowers are notoriously variable --- especially anything with 'Vittatum' in its background. The seed parent for 'Puck' is 'Bridal Veil' which was 'Vittatum' X 'Louise'.
The 'Cinderella' and 'Satrap' story is a good example of that potential variability --- from branch to branch, from plant to plant, and from year to year. See:

I think Don Hyatt's picture was taken at an ARS flower show at the
USNational Arboretum, if my memory of the background is correct.

How come the Dan Krabill photo is white with red streaks, but the Don
Hyatt photo is just white?

I was reviewing a series of numbered pdf files containing a
comprehensive azalea names and descriptions in alphabetic order today
and found a Glen Dale named Puck. I am not sure where I downloaded
and saved the set of files from but one file is named List 81-96.pdf.
Here is the description provided for Puck.
Puck (Glenn Dale)
White, sanded and striped bright red, heavy yellowish blotch, 2 1/2 -
3", broad spreading to 5',Mid.,glossy dark green leaf. (0)
Does anyone have a photograph or a plant?
Does anyone know the site that had this list of azaleas in pdf files.
