RHODO ELITE

RHODO ELITE

We are proud to present the new, unique group of rhododendrons named to emphasize its exceptional character - Rhodo Elite.
Not only the shrubs look impressive during the blooming time, but most of all they astonish with their spectacular leaf appearance for most of the summer time.
The collection includes species, primary and second crossings as well as breeding varieties all of them having unusual and attractive leaves, especially young shoots.
Within the collection you will find shrubs with leaves covered with tarnish (cutter) in different shades from silvery to copper-brown. There are also shrubs covered with an extremely attractive suede lining underneath of the leaf: silvery or copper. Some of them have fantastic young leaf colours: creamy, silvery, blue or brown-purple that lasts for an entire season!
We are convinced that presented varieties and species deserve to be called RHODO ELITE. Although, we do not know the exact frost resistance of plants from RHODO ELITE collection, we can honestly recommend them as hardy, since they were planted in two gardens in central and northern Poland between 2000 and 2007, and all have survived all winters up to now.
We wish you a pleasant experience having these exceptional and spectacular shrubs in your offer and garden.
