This one is not that common, but has pretty flowers.

I figured I'd start a separate thread on blooms since I killed the other.

You have 3 blooms.  1 that is white with pink speckles.  1 that is pink with dark pink speckles.  1 that is a combo of the other 2, but generally white with pink speckles and pink bands.  when in full bloom, which this is not yet, it makes for a really pleasing display.

any others with this variety?

Don, I don't have that variety but will be looking for it now! The variegated flowers are some of my favorites. Yours is beautiful...so much variation. One could study it for hours and not see all of the combinations. Thanks so much for posting it, Don.

Don,

I've not seen this one before either.  Please be sure to post a picture when it's in full bloom.  I'm sure it's outstanding.

Very nice Don, thanks for sharing.  I'm going to have to keep this variety in mind if I start going into azaleas :)
