The Southgate™ Rhododendrons are here, and it's not only our Deep South gardeners who will welcome their presence in the partly shaded garden. This delightful new series, boasting R. hyperythrum as one parent, is also quite cold-hardy, free-flowering, and evergreen -- simply a joy in any climate!

Brandi is one of the finest of the series, covering itself in late spring with pale pink buds that open to large, ruffled pale pink blooms. The shrub is densely branched, growing at a slow to moderate rate to reach 3 to 4 feet high and wide.

The second parent of Brandi is R. 'Scintillation,' but it is from the R. hyperythrum lineage that we can see many characteristics, including the darker buds that open to lavender-blotched pink flowers; long, slender, leathery deep green foliage that is elegantly recurved; and stems that vary from yellow to bright pinkish-brown. Like its parent, Brandi is resistant to root rot. So showy, so unusual, and so garden-tough!

The Southgate™ series ushers in a new era for Rhodies, and we are delighted to make them available this season. They are certain to sell out quickly, so please reserve yours today! Zones 6-9.
