How About A Rhododendron?

I couldn’t resist this rhododendron:

Just the thought of having these gorgeous purple blooms in my garden made me bring this lovely plant home. I added it to the left side of the backyard, right near all the lovely rose bushes.

This rhododendron will grow anywhere from 4 to 6 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, so it should be quite spectacular. Can’t wait!


  1. Haha, those plants know you're a sucker for them!

  2. Now we are both moms to these plants ! The one I bought at Wal-Mart has ridiculously HUGE flowers on it .. so large they look fake for goodness sake ;-) This one will look amazing in the back garden .. makes you want to skip to next year already to see what it will look like ? LOL
    Joy : )

  3. Liza, you are right! They throw themselves at me as I walk by :)

    Joy, I love this plant! And yes, I wish I could skip to next year to see what it will look like. In fact, I'd like to skip to next year to see what a lot of plants will look like!
