The Bowman Form of R. Johnstonianum stands out for being more hardy than most Maddenii hybrids. The fragrance is very light and the flowers are plentiful! Hardy to -5, this lovely small leaf rhody has stood the test of time! It has been propagated since 1882 and how glorious it is to trace flowers through history! We have propagated quite a few and made them very affordable so that we might pass this beauty into the next generation of gardens! This makes a great gift for any gardener!
