Yes indeed, Pacific Big-leaf Rhododendrons (Rhododendron macrophyllum) are very beautiful. They extend from northern California up into British Columbia. This species is the only large-trussed elepidote Rhododendron in western North America. It is in Subsection Ponticum, along with the eastern North American R. catawbiense and R. maximum, and the well-known Pontic Rhododendron (R. ponticum) of Iberia, Anatolia, and the Caucasus, among others.

Yes, Rhododendron ponticum is considered to be invasively naturalized in the British Isles, but even there it does put on a beautiful display.
