    Has anyone got a photo of a mature plant? I read that it grows 8 ft round. Do the different colors, white, yellow and pink, blossom on the same plant? Will it survive Kelowna climate?

    As with others 8'+ specimens take decades to develop. Don't think it (Rhododendron viscosum) comes in yellow. One dominant color per plant. Local climate no problem.

    Thanks Ron B. I'll search out the perfect spot.Like the idea of such a fragrant bush in the courtyard here.
