Probably a hybrid but I have found no description.

Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.

History at Camden Park

Desideratum to Loddiges’ nursery on 16th April 1846 [MP A2933-1, p.147].


Not Rhododendron splendens Hort. ex Lavellée, described in 1877.

Azalea hybridae-belgicae splendida, an early Ghent hybrid, is listed in the 1836 edition of Loddiges’ Nursery catalogue, a copy of which is held at Camden Park [CPA].  This is a possible, but unlikely identification.  See Rhododendron x gandavensis ‘Gloria-mundi’ for further information.
