Steve - I have to agree with you. I've been on so many hill walks that have a long 'start' in wooded areas and they're swamped by Rhodo ponticum.
I inherited a large rhodie here by the front door, and while it does look quite stunning when it's in flower and has lovely rusty red new growth, I really don't like them. I'm always thinking I might take it out. Can't decide.
