Growing Conditions: evenly moist, well drained acidic soils
Parentage: (minus var. minus 'Carolinianum Group x dauricum)

Comments: Bright lavender-pink flowers create a much-needed show so early in the season. Small, shiny leaves turn a rich mahogany-color in winter. Has one of the broadest zone ranges of any rhododendron with its "ironclad" hardiness.
