Proven tolerant of climates as far north as upper New England, this hybrid provides Northern gardeners the opportunity to grow Rhododendrons! This ornate, purple Rhododendron is as hardy as it is beautiful!

Featuring huge, tubular bell-shaped blooms, 'Purple' Dandy Man ™ can handle cold and tolerate extreme heat while maintaining its elaborate, colorful appearance! The spring bloomer produces clusters of the distinctively shaped flowers accented by orange-speckled eyes. Contrasting with the rich, green foliage, the popular shrub displays an enticing combination of colors and form.

Growing to 6 to 8 feet in height and width and a mounded habit, Dandy Man ™ attracts butterflies. In addition to producing great cut flowers, the Rhododendron, which grows on old wood, is outstanding for mass and specimen planting, containers, landscapes and borders.

Requiring little maintenance, should be planted in partial shade or full sun. Acidic soil must be moist with mulch provided in the summer to prevent roots from drying out.
