R. 'Scarlet Leopard'
What happens when you cross a yellow flowering rhododendron with a very dark, almost black rhododendron. I did the cross R. 'Horizon Lakeside' x R. 'Black Widow' and this is one of the results. Very unique! I am hoping I can register this as 'Scarlet Leopard', but we will see if the registrar says "yes". The plant grows to 5 ft tall in 10 years and is probably hard to zone 7. Attractive foliage.
