I haven't been able to trace the exact parentage of this cultivar, but one source describes it as 'A hybrid rhododendron with close ties to the PJM group'. It is even sold as 'PJM Aglo'. Another source simply says it's "an inter-species hybrid'. From the Missouri Botanical Garden page for it, "PJM Group is a series of rhododendron hybrids that resulted from crosses between R. carolinianum and R. dauricum var. sempervirens."
