Blue Diamond Rhododendron: “Lavender-Purple Beauty in Sun-Tolerant Elegance”

Enter the realm of the Blue Diamond Rhododendron, adorned with an array of small, lavender-purple flowers gracefully adorning its densely branched stems. With petite leaves that thrive in sunny positions, this rhododendron boasts resilience under direct sunlight—a rare and valued trait.

Born from the (‘Intrifast’ x augustinii) lineage, this beauty reaches a minimum height of 1.2 meters after a decade, gracing gardens with its charming bloom from September. A top pick among landscapers for its similarity to Bob’s Blue Rhododendron, the Blue Diamond stands out with its deeper, richer blue hue while maintaining similar flower and leaf sizes.

Like its counterpart, the Blue Diamond Rhododendron is an alpine wonder—sun-tolerant and frost-hardy, ideal for gardens seeking resilience and beauty in equal measure.
