Yep this 'Frank Galsworthy' certainly does rock!
I'd love to be able to find at least one for my own garden

I love all of our Rhodo's. They are putting on a show now and will continue until atleast June/July.
I am in Canada, but if I lived in the US. I would go to Greer's Rhododendron's in Oregon or atleast order some, but I cnnot from where I live.
The book they put out is a treasure for any Rhodo holic as myself.
So wonderful.
