Huge FRAGRANT white Easter Lily-like blossoms with yellow centers make this a very exotic rhododendron. The foliage is large and heavily textured, making it look very tropical. This variety, however is tender and will not survive temperatures below +20 deg F. If you live in a cold climate, grow in a half-barrel and move it into a greenhouse for the winter...it works!
Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons
These tender varieties are rare because they do not have a wide enough audience due to their lack of hardiness and are overlooked by the big growers.
Singing Tree Gardens has made these rare varieties our passion and remain committed to producing them for future generations. Currently we are the only source in the USA for these tender, FRAGRANT plants.
