I have this plant from my mothers garden after she passed, but not sure what it is or called it's either an Azalea or Rhododendron, but not sure which one.

    Need to see the leaves/foliage to decide, as well as knowing the height and spread (though a photo of the whole plant might make that clear) but note that,botanically, azalea as a term no longer exists, all are classified as Rhododendron. Is it in a pot or in the ground?

  • In the horticulture trade (in the US), rhododendrons that lose their leaves in the fall (deciduous) are still called azaleas; those that don't lose their leaves are called rhododendrons.

Counting the stamens (about 10) shows it is a Rhododendron. Azaleas have about 5. https://www.azaleas.org/azalea-basics/
