Great looking Rhodos Anne. What other Rhodos did you receive?

Thanks, Tim.
The ones in the wheelbarrow came from a different source. They are:
falconeri ssp. falconeri
mallotum (2)
praestans
rex ssp. rex
serotinum
sinofalconeri
sutchuenense
taliense

I also received a macabeanum from the same source as the hodgsonii. It is a 1 gallon plant with single stem.

Hi Anne,
Nice rhodos! Are the ones in the wheelbarrow from the Rhododendron Species Bot. Garden?
What is the tallish one on front row far left?
Thanks!
Ted.

Ted - glad you like the rhododendrons. The ones in the wheelbarrow are from the RSBG.
The "tallish one" in the front row on the left, near the yellow clip, is mallotum, as is the one to the right of it.
The tall one in the back row on the left is serotinum.
Here is a closeup of the mallotum, now in a pot.

Your wheelbarrow full of rhododendrons is like a kid in a candy store. Great stuff.

What are your plans with these........testing? Your in zone 6a, some are rated to 7b-ish. It would be great if you could hybridize those with hardy Rhodos :D

Tim,
I am a collector. My small rhododendrons remain in pots, moving up in container size periodically, and overwintering in raised bed planters.
Frost cloth is used briefly when temperatures get worrisome.
At some point they will be planted in the garden, but there is no rush on that.
Hybridization - no.
Glad you like the plants. :)

Lovely coloured indentuum Anne.

My nearest Rhododendron nursery is www.glendoick.com and in 16 years of visiting I have only seen hodgsonii for sale once there.

Adam,
I am surprised that Glendoick does not offer hodgsonii more frequently.
They are a well-respected source, from what I hear.
Do you belong to the Scottish Rhododendron Society?
Their Facebook page, which you probably know about, is a good one.
See the post from November 3, 2015 with many species rhododendrons being planted at Glenbranter.
Here is the link https://www.facebook.com/Scottish-Rhodo ... 974073973/

With my hodgsonii, I purchased a younger macabeanum with potential.
Here are two photos of that one.

Anne,

Glendoick often have hodgsonii in their mail order catalogue, but not at their physical plant sales bit at the garden centre.

I am not a member of the Scottish Rhododendron Society, but I will have a look at their Facebook site later - thanks for the link :)

Adam,
Thanks for the clarification about Glendoick.
I would like to acquire the form of hodgsonii with the darker indumentum like in this photo, but so far my source does not have that one.
