Rhododendron pachypodum MD97


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A regrettably tender species of the Maddenia section which we brought back as a cutting from the Cangshan in the fall of 1997 and these are cutting-grown from that plant. Every terminal bud bursts into large white flowers with a soft yellow throat which are sweetly scented. Sunroom in winter.
