    Here is a Rhododendron 'Dame Nellie Melba', growing in my neighbourhood, planted by the homeowner, who keeps all her tags on her plantings. According to Hybrid Rhododendron Plant Description, this is was hybridized by Loder, and is cross between Standishii x arboreum ssp arboreum. Photos are from April 19.
