Positive Todd_Boland On Nov 7, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

Rhododendron pachysanthum is the Rolls Royce of rhododendrons! The new foliage emerges covered in silver fuzz, which remains on the leaves until late summer. The underside of the leaves are silver at first but then turn rusty-cinnamon and remain that way for the life of the leaf. All this and a compact plant to boot.
