Rocky Knoll Farm
This lovely species rhododendron is not easy to find, but we are happy to offer it at Rocky Knoll Farm...when we can keep it in stock! White to light pink funnel-shaped blooms make up robust trusses of around 10-20 flowers each. Each one has green to red spotting and dark anthers, which bring extra character. New foliage often shows off spectacular display of indumentum.
R. pachysanthum has a low and compact growth habit that reaches about 2' in height at maturity. It is an early midseason bloomer, so you can often start seeing blossoms in April, depending on growing conditions. This elepidote rhododendron is hardy to -5°F when protected against windchill.
