Rhododendron - Catawbiense Album
Lovely Evergreen Shrub with Spring Blooms
The Rhododendron – Catawbiense Album is an evergreen shrub. It blooms pure white, bell shaped flowers in mid spring.
It is one of the original varieties selected to be part of the ‘Ironclad Series’. A testament to its hardiness, the “Ironclad” refers to its ability to withstand severe weather conditions. It has also been named a "Proven Performer" by the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society.
The Catawbiense Album is a vigorous upright shrub with large, glossy dark green foliage. In mid spring the blush colored buds will burst open.
The large clusters of pure white blooms with sunny yellow centers are stunning against the leathery emerald leaves.
The Catawbiense Album matures to six feet tall and wide with a naturally rounded shape. An evergreen this size can be used many places in your landscape.
Beautiful planted in groups, it would also make a great border or hedge, but it is dramatic enough as a single specimen.
