Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Todd_Boland On Mar 2, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

Highly recommended rhododendron. Plants are compact; flowers open apple-blossom pink then fade to nearly pure white. The new leaves emerge covered in silvery-grey tomentum. This later gives way to shiny green leaves, but the undersides remain covered in creamy-colored felt-like indumentum. It really makes as good a foliage plant as a flowering one.
