Details

Finally back in stock after several years. This is Ron's first formal introduction. The clear yellow color, compact habit and heavy budding came from Hachmann's 'Goldkrone'. The hardiness, good foliage, bigger flowers with a blotch, and also compact habit came from the mother. The mother (seed) plant is well-tested and hardy to -25°F! Flowers open from medium yellow buds to bright medium yellow with red speckling on the upper lobe. This is so very new, Ron had it micro-propagated to make it quickly available for further testing in a variety of places. Try 'Absolute Citron', we would appreciate hearing your feedback! This plant is very compact and well branched, semi-dwarf, prob to about 2.5 feet high and wide in 10 years. It does best in more light than many big-leaf rhodies(Full sun in a sheltered spot is ok in Massachusetts) and will not do well in deep shade.
