(Laurie Rhododendron, Mezitt Hybrid Rhododendron, Rhododendron)
Valued for its early bloom, its exceptional cold-hardiness, and its handsome evergreen leaves, this hybrid rhododendron bears large clusters of pinkish-white flowers in early spring. The wide-flaring, funnel-shaped, single or semi-double blooms have gold speckles on their upper lobes. A close relative of the famed PJM rhododendrons, this slow-growing upright waist-high shrub has small glossy dark green leaves that turn bronzy-purple in cold weather. The leaves are fragrant when bruised.
A descendant of the Belgian Indica Hybrids, this evergreen azalea bears showy clusters of semi-double lavender blooms on compact mounded plants. The flowers are hose-in-hose (with two "stacked" whorls of petals). They appear from late winter into spring, but sometimes also from fall to late winter in frost-free districts. The mounded waist-high plants have elliptic dark glossy-green leaves.
