Perfect and small, dark-green rounded leaves cover this mounding rhododendron, hiding the twiggy structure. The flowers are a clear blue-purple and are held in small trusses of 8-10. Excellent for the smaller garden, especially for the purple lover. In winter, the leaves will darken to a rich burgundy color, then back to green in spring. Created by Robert Rhodes of B.C. Canada and registered in 1977.
