One of my earliest crosses of R. 'Wizard' x R. irroratum 'Polka Dot' that is still one of my favorites today. The plant is compact growing to 4ft x 4ft with very shiny dark-green leaves. The flowers are not large, but are very lovely with shades of cream, yellow, red and with a brilliant magenta pictoee edge. 'Lynnette' blooms in March, so is one the first to show color here. I expect it to be hardy to -10 deg F because of the R. catawbience blood in R. 'Wizard'.
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
