Sometime around 1850 Anthony Waterer introduced a Rhododendron variety called Roseum Elegans. Since then, this fast growing American native offspring has remained one of the most popular. It features abundant, large clusters of absolutely gorgeous flowers that are a rosy lavender-pink with red-brown freckles on the petals. A larger grower from 6 to 8 feet tall and equally as wide clothed in long and leathery deep green leaves that maintain their deep color year round. One of the showiest of all Rhododendrons, Roseum Elegans is a fine selection for the partially shaded landscape or woodland borders where there's some filtered sun or shade during the mid afternoon hours. An absolutely superb plant in and out of flower, even in cold climates as far north as USDA Zone 5 (-30F) and south to Zone 8. Get all the details below!
