Rhododendron X Patty Bee

Patty Bee Rhododendron

  • Tight, dense landscape form
  • Great for grouping and many other uses in the landscape
  • Light yellow flowers in mid-May
  • Larger, pointed, more consistently green colored foliage
  • Slower growing than 'Towhead'
Any yellow flowered Rhododendron gets notice, but 'Patty Bee' will further pique your interest with a tight, dense landscape form that every gardener loves. It's hard not to love this little beauty because it can be used in so many different locations in the landscape and is a no brainer for grouping in the foreground of any planting. It is slightly slower growing than 'Towhead' with larger, pointed, more consistently green colored foliage that produces a whole different look in bloom when covered with small trusses of light yellow flowers in mid-May or without bloom. Give this plant some winter wind protection and a morning sun location and get prepared to be charmed.
