Is it a Rhododendron or an Azalea? Had this one for a lot of years but have never had a label.

 Yes!  All azaleas are rhodos, but  not all rhodos are azaleas!  It  is  an Azalea  in so far  as it would  be  sold as  such.
 There  is usually  a  distinct "look" to an azalea especially  in the  flowers and  foliage, whether evergreen or  deciduous, which identifies it as an azalea as opposed to a  rhodo.  Azaleas are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron, particularly the former sections Tsutsuji (evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous).

Rhododendron concinnum, a very small plant I won as a raffle prize quite a few years ago now and flowering for the first time for me.

Rhododendron keiskei 'Ginny Gee' or at least I think it is but lost label so it might have been R. k. 'Wee Bee'

Rhododendron luteum (or Azalea?) had this one for a long time so it might have a cultivar name also.

Not sure where to put this one, Cassiope 'Edinburgh'

Thanks John. I have a vague memory that the name began with a W (definitely not Wren) but I don’t know why I think that.

Rh. Glischrum ssp. rude
First time flowering for me. I bought it as I liked its bristly leaves and stems. I had some problems with it as the stems are brittle and broke off in the wind. Had to move it twice before I found this place for it.

David  - These evergreen azaleas are very difficult - nay impossible - to identify save for a few very distinct ones.   I'll stick my neck out and say it might be Diamant Purpur, one of a number of German evergreen azaleas in the Diamant Series bred by Fleischman.  They are great performers but are not often seen for sale these days.

Graham - I'm fairly certain it's 'Patty Bee'. Glendoick did 'Widgeon' but it's pink, 'Wren' it's not, that would leave 'Wagtail' which I have here and it's almost prostrate, the flowers are quite reminiscent of lowndesii. It can be deciduous after cold winters. Can't recall any other Ws from Glendoick.

Thanks John. I know that I bought it from Burncoose many years ago, I'll have a look at their current catalogue and see if I can find any clues.
