My new Rhododendron sinofalconeri arrived yesterday (who said money can't buy happiness). Any chance that it will survive in my zone 7 garden? It is protected against wind, the average minimum temperature during the last 8 years is minus 12,4 degree C, the absolute minimum was minus 16, and we do have occasional late frosts well into May.

Anders - You will not have a problem growing sinofalconeri.  I attach an Eiberg picture of a big one in Denmark.  Several people I know are growing in in Connecticut and Martha's Vineyard, both are colder than you.  I have several seedlings growing here but I want to get them sized-up before planting out.

I've posted some pics of Rhododendrons in flower from the FCHS Floral Festival on the Southern Hemisphere thread:

Good to hear John, I might even invest in a rex to plant next to the sinofalconei.
