Lovely Purple Blooms

If you're love soft, cool tones and want to add a delicate touch to your landscape, the Lee's Dark Purple Rhododendron is for you. Use several together as a screen or mix them in your shrub border.

Plum-colored buds develop on long trusses above attractive evergreen foliage. Then, a delightful clear, luminous amethyst violet bloom opens. Every bloom is tickled with a honey-colored "splotch" for added depth.

Create an ombre effect by pairing it with purple tones along the spectrum, from periwinkle to lilac through hotter magenta and jam. Purple is restful, you could create an amazing oasis to unwind and recharge in.

This shrub is a jewel, and like all gems, requires the right setting to truly shine.

Plant this in fast-draining, acidic soil for best performance. They grow naturally in the thin soil of a mountain slope. Replicate that in your landscape creating a mound or raised bed 18 inches tall. Amend the soil with pine needle soil conditioner, peat moss and perlite pellets.

"Mound them up" when planting. Leave several inches of root ball showing above ground. Cover with a thick layer of pine mulch (but don't touch the stem!)

Keep these evenly moist and pull weeds just as soon as you see them appear.

You'll fall in love with this plant. Order today!

  • Luscious Lavender Flowers
  • Attractive Evergreen Foliage
  • Low Maintenance in Well Drained Soil
