 PJM RhododendronP.J.M. Rhododendron’s bloom in late April with that brilliant show of lavender.

The winter foliage of the P.J.M. is burgundy and shows quite nicely against a snowy background.

It’s a zone 4 plant that likes full/partial sun so it will do fine with 3 plus hours of sun a day.

P.J.M. Rhododendron’s grow to 5-6’ with a 5-6’ spread. There is a compact clone available if your space is only 3’-4’.
