    If you can help, I'd appreciate it.
    This very small rhodo has been 'growing' for over 3 years.
    First of all, I don't know why it is taking so long.
    Second of all, I have no idea what type it is.
    Perhaps if I knew I could help it along.
    It came from a location in Parksville on Vancouver Island.
    Apparently it is a unique variety.
    It is finally, after so long, sprouting a bit.
    Perhaps it likes its new location?
    Any ideas? Or is it still too early.
    Thanks, in advance, for your help.

    Leaf shape and appearance of new growth suggests it might be a form or hybrid of Rhododendron calophytum. But you will have to grow it to a more advanced state of vegetative development and to a point where it is producing flowers before it is possible to have any idea what it might be or what it might be related to.

    If an unselected hybrid seedling it will not have either a hybrid cultivar name or a species name.
