Rad new introduction to cultivation of this tremendously adorable Vireya section Rhododendron collected on a shaded rocky cliff face not far from the Vietnam border.  Small glossy green leaves colored in bronze when in new growth.  This is essentially a creeper as it was truly hugging the rock growing in little humus pockets.  Nice and cheery small open-faced yellow flowers are borne over a long span.  Cute quotient is pretty much pegged right at the max.  Hardiness is unknown as there is no track record on this species but the mainland Vireyas have surprised with some species like R. rushforthii being quite good in the Seattle area.  To be safe, lets start at a warm zone 8b and hopefully work down with experience.  Easy in a pot and can be overwintered in a cool sunroom until more is known and probably the best thing to do its first winter with you anyway.
