Winter in the Rhododendron Species Garden, Part 3

Here are the very cool plants I purchased from the garden:

Back row from left:
Galax aphylla - Evergreen groundcover
Rhododendron 'Doris Mossman' - A hybrid vireya with bright orange flowers
Speirantha convallarioides - Yet another evergreen groundcover (I'm a big fan)

Front row from left:
Rhododendron taxifolium - A vireya with white bell-shaped flowers
Rhododendron Section Choniastrum 164sd2010 - Large unknown species
Rhododendron keiskei 'Yaku Fairy' - A super dwarf mounding groundshrubber
Dimorphanthera alpina - A vine with large, blueberry like fruit (semi-tender)
Oreocharis auricula - Cousin of the common Africa violet houseplant

  1. Very interested to see Rhododendron taxifolium, it really does look like a Yew. What is the form like as it matures?
