You are growing a Rhododendrum. They bloom in the spring and, after the flowers die, new leaves grow. The new leaves are lighter but will turn darker with age. Your Rhododendrum looks good.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
