Some of the bloom are quite large

I believe this one is called Peach Fantasy.I think it’s beautiful.

….and here’s another favourite of mine. It becomes more white as it ages.

It seems there are a fair few at Chelsea this year too; they were very popular when the first show took place 100 years ago.
Mine isn't looking so good this year, fewer buds than last year and I am still waiting for them to break.
Do you know the name of the last one, eirlys? It is gorgeous.

Xela: I don't know the name of practically anything in our garden, I have to confess. I am the "creator" : the one who creates when the garden and the house are full of plants! I love the "finished" product and I like to suggest "improvements".

I did ask about Peach Fantasy and I will consult the oracle about the one you mention. All the garden plants are labelled but the labels have an odd habit of disappearing in the foliage!

Xela: I have been told that it is Rhododendron Loder's White. I believe we bought it at Leonardslee Gardens when they were open to the public.

I believe the new owners are considering re-opening the gardens to the public and have applied for many changes to the car park, house, stables etc. Good news!

That's one to go on my shopping/wish list, it is so beautiful. Thank you for finding out its name for me, Eirlys.
