Dandy Man Purple Rhododendron. (PPAF)-Amazing disease resistance and heat tolerance! The lush, deep purple blooms of this beauty deliver a knock-out punch of color in the early spring landscape. It is tough and rugged and will not disappoint. The plant has a nice, well-branched form with evergreen foliage. Works well for foundation plantings, in woodland gardens or mixed borders or even as a specimen plant. Grows 6 to 8 feet tall and 6 to 9 feet wide.
