    Yes, Moupin rhododendron is much better. This species is an epiphyte making its home on mossy, fern encrusted limbs and broken tops of broadleaved trees, cliffs and large boulders in central Sichuan. Gardeners should consider it a subject for use on moist old tree stumps or well decayed fallen logs. It’s natural range extends into NE Yunnan and neighbouring Guizhou. The closely related R. dendrocharis is another epiphytic gem with smaller leaves. To see flower images go to Google Images or to see good pics look in Peter and Kenneth Cox’s ‘Encyclopedia of Rhododendron Species’, p. 310.
