Created by Dr. Ned Brockenbrough of Belleview, Washington by crossing rhododendron 'Anna' with 'Kilimanjaro'. The plant is a medium sized grower with very nice dark green leaves, and is always full and lush. The flowers are a rich blood red, in very nice round ball trusses. The plant is hardy to 0 degrees F, and blooms in April. A very handsome rhododendron and worth adding to any collection.
