Comments: So typically rhododendron flowers lighten and brighten our landscapes. The special treat here though is the foliage may be more outstanding then the blooms. After the pink trusses fade new growth appears with a heavy coating of tan tomentum and a light tan indumentum. It retains the tomentum for much of the early growing season finally fading to reveal dark, green leaves.
