My Vireya Rhododendron 'Robert Bates'. The plant blooms throughout the year with the heaviest bloom in the fall. The flowers are very fragrant.

The one I had? turned out to be not as advertised on the label. I thought it was something like yours there Randall,and it flowered the next year in tiny tube flowers a pale purple! I did later see mine at the Vireya Garden in Oakland. Even bigger it was just as dull- lol. The label there said something about "V.azalea".
Its gone now. Not lamented.

It looks very healthy considering how hot it's been this whole year. I guess having them in your back yard facing north makes all the difference.
