| From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing OLINDA (Niswonger '89) Sdlg. SP 11-85: (Blue Lassie x unknown, prob. self) X Ila Crawford. SPU, 44", M. In the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne, Aust. near Olinda, is one of the most colorful spots anyone could hope to see since it is the location of one of the most beautiful rhododendron gardens in the world (my opinion). The blue skies are a part of that scene, and the blue color of this spuria is a new scene in the spuria world. I think you will enjoy growing this hardy variety. $20.00. Cape Iris.
