I got this rhododendron a number of years ago. It didn't have any real identification on it. (HATE when growers do that!) I THINK it is Polar Nacht (Polar Night). If not, can someone please tell me what it is? (I love the color and am trying to root some cuttings.)

I've included several pics.

Thanks for your help!

Rick

a few days ago I did the pictures of rhododendron Polarnacht (in one word german, eng. Polar night)
Unfortunately yielded anything, only the buds, I don't have much experience with rhodod. , I think it's lighter and has significantly yellow anthers.
There are several shades
