Rhododendron - azaleas - some other suggestions
invisible.gif Rhododendron ex canescens x atlanticum 'Confetti Creeper' is from seed sent by Mike Creel, who raises hybrid american azaleas. The seed parent is a hybrid of Rhododendrons canescens and atlanticum, in which the petals are narrow, so this characteristic is likely to show up in the offspring.
invisible.gif Rhododendron periclymenoides ex double flowered form is grown from seed of the double flowered form of this pink rhododendron.
