R. 'Ever Red'
New from Europe, this unusual foliage plant will have red leaves most of the year. As spring approaches, the leaves start to shade towards green, but are more bronze even then. The flowers are blood-red color in lax trusses. The plant stays low and contrasts nicely with the green plants nearby. R. 'Ever Red' is the absolute darkest red-purple leaved rhododendron to date with leaves so dark, they sometimes appear almost black. Grows low, to 2 ft tall.
