Rocky Knoll Farm
Persuasion is a unique hybrid with large trusses of multiple purple-edged blossoms that fade to a white center to create a distinct and incredible contrast. The foliage is great as it starts with a bronze hue during new growth and then changes to olive green. It provides a great skirting to the blooms and makes for an overall excellent color combination.
This rhododendron can grow to about 6' tall and has a nice growth habit. Plant in partials shade to full sun and expect blooms around April to May depending on where you live. Hardy to 5° F when protected from wind chill.
