Rhododendron 'Mrs. Murple's Purple', has large, 5 lobed, ruffled, star-shaped flowers that form a large ball truss that complements the attractive foliage and good growth habit. Each flower is a medium purple with a hint of red and fades to a white centre with a gold blotch on the upper lobe. The reverse of each flower has more of a reddish tint which helps to create a lovely contrast with the white anthers. (produced by crossing 'Purple Splendour' x 'Whitney's Purple').

  1. I love the color, gorgeous image!
    Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  2. Absolutely beautiful colour in these ones. My parents had a red Rhododendron in their previous home that I grew up in but it wasn't as spectacular looking as the purple
