Description

Three colors in one plant!

Enjoy a changing palette of color with durable Dandy Man Color Wheel rhododendron. Deep red buds begin to appear in late spring, opening to reveal ruffled pink blooms. Those age to crisp white, creating the effect of three different colors at once. Handsome evergreen foliage, excellent disease resistance, and heat tolerance make this NCSU hybrid an adaptable, widely usable broadleaf evergreen.
