Growing Conditions: evenly moist, well drained acidic soils
Parentage: sport of 'Kermesinum' (Wemken 1972)
Comments: I finally have this available again as our old parent plant took a beating in a heavy snow event several years ago. Gorgeous 2-toned rose-pink flowers with a white picotee edge. A stunning color combination. Flowers in mid-May. Leaves are small, rounded and glossy. Sometimes listed as R. kiusianum, which may account for its hardiness.
