Created by Bob Scott in the 1970's this rhododendron rhabdotum hybrid, 'Butterhorn' ('Eldorado' x rhabdotum) created a stunningly rich, tubular yellow flower with a dense, low plant habit and an uncommonly long blooming period. Even though there were no stripes, considering the color and texture of the flower, its bronzy new growth, plus its dense growth habit, 'Butterhorn' was an instant winner.
Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons
· Hard to propagate – many cultivars do not root easily from cuttings, but at a reduced rate thus making the plant rare.
· Hard to find – these cultivars are hard to find in the first place, probably because they are hard to root from cuttings
