This hard-working Joe Parks' hybrid has proven itself hardy in Maine and New Hampshire. You'll love the rich purple blooms, but you will really appreciate the R. pseudochrusanthum genes which give it an extremely high level of Phytophthora resistance. Pretty and tough, this shrub delivers!
Prefers moist, well-drained soils with pH between 5.5-7.5. Apply rhododendron fertilizer in spring. Trim after flowering.
