What's your favourite hardy pink rhodo?

petguy(5a ONT)May 7, 2007

greetings all, I am looking for a large, hardy, "tropical looking" pink rhododendron & considering 3 so far; Helsinki U, Haaga, Roseum Elegans. Does anyone have any experience with these & what do you think of their looks?

thanks for any input.

Scintillation and Janet Blair are two of my favorites although Scintillation is a bit tender. Mine is on the north side of the house. For a small-leaved Rhodie, Windbeam winds hands down.

Scintillation is beautiful, but it sun burns easily. It needs shade.
