Identifying Rhododendron Type

I have two rhododendrons in my garden,  both beautiful, both unidentified. Does anyone know the full names for these? The pink one was slightly fading when I took the photo.

    Welcome to the forums.
    There are 1000's of Rhododendron/Azalea...species, hybrids and cultivars.
    Even experts in Rhododendrons often struggle to agree what the accurate name is.

    i would suggest you enjoy them and not worry what the actual name is.

  • I Would say "the red one" and "the Pink one" :)  
    Joking apart I dont know the names but I have two the same as yours and I got them from Tesco 3 years ago.This year again they have produced beutiful blooms
    As Silver surfer says Enjoy them

    Happy Gardening

  • Do you know how big they will get? Or are they dwarfs varieties?

    Without knowing a name it is impossible to tell.

    If you are desperate to get accurate names,  time of flowering, ultimate size height in 10 years you need to buy from a specialist grower of Rhodo's.
