Rhododendron indicum ‘Ovata’
Probably a cultivar of Rhododendron indicum Sweet. I have found no reference to this azalea and no description.

Listed only in the 1857 catalogue [T.85/1857].
See Rhododendron ovatum (Lindl.) Planch. ex Maxim., synonym Azalea ovata but this is probably a different plant.
