    Do you know where I can purchase a Augustinii Rhododendron. I am told they are the nicest close to blue species.

    Color varies but tall open habit usual. Due to some forms being quite blue used to produce many blue hybrids, these often having a more compact habit. Hit some local nurseries to see what they have in stock and flowering at this time. You will probably do better with this approach than looking only for R. augustinii.

    Hi eutabelle,

    we have at least 8 distinct forms of Rhododendron augustinii under cultivation in South Langley.

    Send me a pm for further details.
