What am I talking about, I'm such a newbie, I just can't resist the thrill of competition


LOL.... good luck! I'm hopeless at identifying plants, so I'll restrict myself to vicariously enjoying this competition. :lol:

I was actually going by the leaf size, which is much more azalea-like. The rhodos tend to have much larger fleshier leaves.
