Rhododendron x 'Bubblegum'

SKU
40587
Trusses of bubblegum pink, lightly scented flowers explode in spring, offset by showy reddish stems and a dense backdrop of small deep green leaves that turn bronze over the winter months. A low, compact evergreen that is a perfect foreground for larger flowering shrubs. Works well for containers.
