Dramatic merlot-red, ruffled blooms emerge on a neat, mounded plant in May. Deep red flowers against glossy, dark green foliage create a show-stopping explosion in your landscape. 'Dark Lord' is a conversation piece, not your average Rhody! This medium height, rounded evergreen is a favorite of bees and other pollinators!
