New from the famous Hachmann Nursery in Germany, this rich deep-purple flowering rhododendron will delight the eye! The flowers have an added bonus with a golden-green blotch in the upper petals, making the blooms sparkle. The bloom is late, at the end of May or early June, extending the season. Plant with late blooming yellow flowering rhododendrons like R. 'Nancy Evans' for a spectacular show in your garden. Grows wider than tall.
