Rhododendron ‘Wine and Roses’

Rhododendron hybrid

A stunning rhodie even without blooms, Rhododendron ‘Wine and Roses’ sports an attractive blue-green leaf surface with a beautiful, contrasting red/orange underside.

I purchased Wine and Roses in 2021 and loved it so much, I bought another one in 2022. The green and red coloration of this rhododendron helps tie together greens and reds in the landscape. I set our first one among hostas between our Everred rhododendron and Pixie Japanese maple, and the second sits next to our gorgeous Twombly’s Red Sentinel maple. I will absolutely buy another one if I can come up with a place to put it!
