Rhododendron 'Double Dots'
Gold medal Rhodo 2010 in Westerstede, Germany.
This is seedling Z. 512, a cross between Rh. 'Whitney's Tigerlily' x (Rh. 'Graf Lennart' x Rh. calophytum).
The special thing about this hybrid are the double flowers, which means, that the normal tiny green calyx leaves have turned into large petals with the same colour as the normal petals.
Light pinkish white with dots all over all the petals, a 'heritage' of the mother Rh. 'Whitney's Tigerlily'.
Growth is upright to about 5 feet in 10 years. Hardy to at least -5F (-21 C)
Flowering time is mid May. Rather compact habit up to 4 - 5 feet in 10 years.
