Rosy pink flowers appear in April. Reddish-purple leaves change to dark green, then to yellow. Forms a spreading, graceful crown. Full sun or light shade. Grows to 20' to 30', 30' spread.







PJM Rhododendron
 
This popular rhododendron hybrid is a compact, rounded, small-leaved, evergreen shrub that generally grow to 3-6’ tall and is noted for having exceptional winter hardiness. Lavender flowers bloom in clusters (4-9 flowers per cluster) in April.

Blooming in late April- May, the lilac has fragrant purple to white flowers, depending on cultivar.   Lilacs do best in full sun, and in well-drained, good garden soil with a pH that is neutral to slightly alkaline.
