    "The MASTER "strikes again! Yes Ron, you are of course right. I had rather hoped the Rhododendron would have posed more of a challenge, it is a bit unusual, even the flowers are different.
    According to the RHS Plantfinder the Rhamnus has had a name change and is now Frangula alnus Aspleniifolium. It is apparently the host plant for the Brimstone butterfly.

    I disagree with you, Ron B, you can consider yourself a genius (and a master)!
