Hi, looking for a Rhodo' variety / name ID, I think it may be a Japanese type, many thanks.

One of the compact floriferous Rhodo is Rhododendron yakushimanum
To find one with those colours it MAY be Rhododendron yakushimanum Percy Wiseman

Looking again...your flowers are frilly.....try Rhodo Honey Butter.

Yakushimanum for sure, well done SS. Not convinced about either Percy Wiseman or Honey Butter.
