    Hello!

    I am in the Pacific NW, north of Seattle and am looking for a spreading (non-upright) blue - violet rhody about max 4 ft. I found out about the Saint Breward from American Rhododendron Society. Does any one no of success, failures of this species in the NW?

    Does anyone know a nursery in Seattle area that would carry these? Googled this species and the only on-line carriers appear to be UK. Maybe a UK variety?

    Thanks for any help.

    The Plant Locator - Western Region (2004, Black-Eyed Susans/Timber, Portland) lists Hammond's Acres of Rhodies, Arlington, WA for 'Saint Breward'.
