    I have an unknown Rhododendron species. It stands about 4 feet tall currently. I've noticed that the leaf shape is noticeably different from other Rhodos I have. It has not flowered in the four years I've owned it. Anyone?

    Cheers, LPN.

    could it be a daphniphyllum rather than a rhododendron. I know Daniel had a picture of the common (?) November 19, 2005 : Daphniphyllum macropodum as a Pic o' tha Day.

    Just thinking out loud here?

    could be R. decorum- the leaf looks quite a bit like this and it is a shy bloomer as a young plant.
