I think that "wild" Rhododendrons can be divided into 4 taxa - early pink, white, purple and red. The white-flowered ones flower before the typical purple ponticum-type Rhododendrons. I think that they are Rhododendron caucasicum x ponticum, but caucasicum x arboreum and caucasicum x catawbiensis were apparently also raised.
