An eye-catching Exbury hybrid 'Gibraltar' hails from diverse geographical origins that can expand to 6 feet high and 4 feet wide. It is so exceptional, in fact, that it was given Rhododendron of the Year honors in 2007 by the American Rhododendron Society (ARS). When in bloom, it boasts huge trusses of flat, 2½-inch flowers with broad, charmingly fringed, coppery orange-red petals. Easily grown and quite rugged, these beauties are highly mildew-resistant. A mid-season bloomer that blooms in mid to late spring, it is a very heavy budder, richly fragrant, and easy to grow. Full sun only in zones 5 and 6. Part shade in zones 7 and 8. Zones 5-8.
