|'Northern Rose' has a semi-upright habit and bears an abundance of showy, vivid, bright pink flowers beginning in mid-April. This rhododendron is the result of a cross between R. 'Waltham' and R. mucronulatum 'Cornell Pink.' It was first developed by Dr. Rober Ticknor.
The 'P.J.M.' group of rhododendrons are smaller, growing to a height of 3 to 6 feet tall. Form is rounded and foliage is small, leathery and dark green. One of the reasons the 'P.J.M.' group is such a heavy flowerer is that the plant does not set seed. An excellent rhododendron for the New England states.
