Mine are vireyas, 75 or 80 of them. Several are in bloom right at this moment, e.g. R. Taylori, Tropical Tango, Toff, a Leucogigas and Cair Paravel plus a few others including Bold Janus.

I did check out the Wikipedia page. You did good.
My only disappointment with the page is there is no reference to a "Tropical/sub tropical" rhododendron or the word "Vireya" on the page. We've spent so many years trying to get the word "vireya" out into the public. Still too many don't know what they are.
Thanks for sharing.

I found an article on Wikipedia that validated my memory. The article was not cross-referenced, however, anywhere on Wikipedia so I added a link from the article on Rhododendrons and I also added a link from the "List of Rhododendron Species" article.
