I've been growing this for about 5 yrs. in my southern Michigan(zone 5) garden. So far it is proving to be surprisingly hardy for me. The flowers are the brightest pink of any hardy yak. rhodo. that I've tried.

3/24/11-Update- after this winter, which wasn't particularly harsh, this plant has suffered severe leaf burn (approx. 90% of leaves burned). ...guess I have to temper my enthusiasm for this one!
