The flowers of this rhododendron are light magenta-rose, as in the last figure, not the first two figures.
My digital camera registered the flowers in the first two figures as light violet in the morning light when I took the images.
This rhododendron tree is about 15 feet tall and trimmed into this beautiful shape by White-tailed Deer.
