Rhododendron diversip. Milky Way

Milky Way Rhododendron (Labrador Tea)

  • Unique foliage is outstanding
  • Leathery, deep green foliage
  • Dense growing
  • Trusses of small white flowers in early May
  • Strong spring bloom
  • Tolerates moist soils better than other Rhododendron
  • Compact form make it prefect for grouping in semi-shaded areas

This plant is aptly named, for when it blooms in spring, it is blanketed with what appear to be a million white stars. The distinctive foliage is small and hairy. The attractive evergreen foliage is deep green and wooly underneath. 'Milky Way' is a tough and adaptable plant, but performs best in a moist, well-drained organic soil in sun or light shade.
