Positive Todd_Boland On Feb 18, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is one of the hardiest rhododendrons and is included in the 'Ironclad' series. It is hardy to zone 4b. The flower buds are pale lavender but the flowers open to nearly white. There is a notable central green blotch. A great rhody for cold areas.
