    This is a rhododendron with a bit of interesting Oregon history.

    In 1951 a colossal 40 foot R. Cynthia was donated to the newly formed Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden in Portland. This special occasion is noted in the January 1951 Quarterly Bulletin of the American Rhododendron Society along with a picture (also in the book, The Pacific Coast Rhododendron Story – Portland Chapter, page 54). The behemoth, root ball and all are suspended above the truck that brought it to its new home. Worthy of seeing. Not sure if the Cynthia is possibly still alive at the garden.

    I have grown this rhododendron many years ago with great success in Duvall, WA.
