Suggestions for a Zone 5 Purple Rhododendron
Hi everyone, I'm redoing my front yard landscaping and would like to add a purple rhododendron. Something in the mid to dark purple range. It needs to be hardy to zone 5 or better and I'd prefer it grow no larger than 4-5 feet tall/wide. It will see morning sun and afternoon shade.

I think the Purpureum Elegans fits the bill. Any other variants I should look out for? What are the other differences I should be aware of besides flower and leaf color? Thanks.
