The Q&A Archives: rhododendrons

Question: I'm looking for a couple of rhododendrons for two different projects here in Portland Oregon. One client has a rhodendron

Answer: ANNA ROSE WHITNEY RHODODENDRON (Rhododendron x 'Anna Rose Whitney') is a little larger than Mrs. Furnival, but has similarly colored flowers.

PJMs are famously adaptable shrubs with mahagony leaf color in winter. This group of cultivars include some that are nearly dwarf. The mature height and spread of the 'PJM' rhododendron is approximately 4 to 6 feet tall. Several selections of 'PJM' are available and include 'Black Satin' (winter foliage is shiny, coal black), 'Elite' (blossoms are slightly more pink), and 'Victor' (a compact, slow growing type). They prefer more sun than most rhodies & won't achieve maximum winter leaf-color in shade.
