Vireya Rhododendron 'Robert Bates'

Bloom cluster on my Vireya, these have a very sweet and spicy fragrance.

Vireyas are a tropical Rhododendron . The plants are epiphytes in nature and seem happiest somewhat root bound in smaller pots full of loose orchid bark. Mine usually blooms the heaviest in winter with occasional blooms other times of the year. I took this picture yesterday.
