Author's NotesThere seems to be different types of Rhododendron April Mist. If you google the plant results will show PJM April Mist, April Mist (hybridized by Dr. Gus Mehlquist) and April Mist (hybridized by Ingrid Mehlquist. The last is the one listed by The Rhododendron Society and the one I used. The description of this one matches the images I have.
