Originally bred by the Shammarello Nursery in northern Ohio, the 'Holden' Rhododendron is a compact cultivar with dense, thick and lustrous evergreen leaves that are an excellent backdrop for the abundant, large clusters of deep magenta buds that open to truly stunning, deep rose pink flowers. The upper petal is adorned with dark red freckles and green spots for a wonderful contrast. A lower grower to maybe 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide, 'Holden' is a good fit as an accent shrub in smaller garden spaces or in groupings or as a natural hedge where space will allow in larger, partially shaded to sunny landscape and woodland borders. Vigorous, heat and cold tolerant (-20F), and extremely showy, this glorious beauty will always have you looking forward to spring! Get all the details below!
