Here are a few suggestions:
Rhododendron 'Northern Star Burst'; This plant has something for every season, reddish buds give way to large clusters of intense pink flowers followed by a bright apple green flush of new foliage. In fall new growth turns cinnamon before turning purple/black.

?Anna Rose Whitney? has large, bright rosy pink blossoms along with large flat leaves. It's a vigorous plant, sturdy and heat tolerant.

Rhododendron x `Sneezy`; Massive rich pink trusses of trumpet-shaped flowers bloom heavily from late may through early June. A versatile compact plant produces silvery new growth. Excellent for smaller gardens and urban applications. Yakushimanum hybrid. Evergreen. Shade or part shade. Moderate growth to 4 feet tall and as wide.

Rhododendron x 'Dreamland'; Orchid-like blossoms are almost tropical appearing on vigorous, hardy plants. Tidy compact form is perfect for foundations, fence lines and as informal hedges. Flowers heavily midseason with large clusters of vivid pink buds that open to pale pink blossoms tinged with magenta. Olive green foliage is tightly packed for excellent form. Partial sun. Moderate grower to 4 feet tall and wide.

Rhododendron x 'Looking Glass'; This pink flowering shrub with increased hardiness is abundant with rose-red buds that open to deep pink growing lighter as they age. Blooming plants resemble old fashioned shrub roses due to ruffled petal edges. Emerald leaves are rich and well distributed for excellent contrast against lighter flowers. Part sun. Moderate growth to 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
