R. 'Scarlet Leopard'

R. 'Scarlet Leopard'

What happens when you cross a yellow flowering rhododendron with a very dark, almost black rhododendron. I did the cross R. 'Horizon Lakeside' x R. 'Black Widow' and this is one of the results. Very unique! I am hoping I can register this as 'Scarlet Leopard', but we will see if the registrar says "yes". The plant grows to 5 ft tall in 10 years and is probably hard to zone 7. Attractive foliage.

Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons

·        Hard to propagate – many cultivars do not root easily from cuttings, but at a reduced rate thus making the plant rare.

·        Hard to find – these cultivars are hard to find in the first place, probably because they are hard to root from cuttings

  • Singing Tree Gardens Originals – All cultivars created uniquely by Singing Tree Gardens are deemed ‘rare’. Singing Tree Gardens is the ‘Exclusive Distributor in the USA’ of this variety.
