One new species, Rhododendron subroseum Xiang Chen & Jiayong Huang, and one new variety, R. denudatum var. glabriovarium 
Xiang Chen & Xun Chen (Ericaceae), from the Guizhou Province, China are described and illustrated. Rhododendron subroseum 
is most similar to R. morii from which it differs mainly by having glandular branchlets, a subcordate leaf blade base and 
a mucronate leaf blade apex, a less floriferous inflorescence, a campanulate to broadly-campanulate corolla, and a 
glandular-hairy style. Rhododendron denudatum var. glabriovarium differs from R. denudatum var. denudatum mainly by 
having a glabrous ovary. Both of the new taxa are quite rare and therefore their protection is highly desired.
