Rhododendron Handy Man™ Purple (Rhododendron)

Flower Color: Lavender
Height: 6-8 Feet Spread: 6-8 Feet
Hardiness Zone: 4-9 What's My Hardiness Zone?


(Azalea) Handy Man™ Purple Rhododendron is a compact-growing spring-flowering shrub that adds a big pop of color wherever it is planted. Each tubular-shaped flower in the pom-pom clusters of blooms is purple with orange flecks in the center. The evergreen leaves are dark and lustrous, providing a perfect backdrop for the blooms.

Handy Man ™ Purple Rhododendrons are hardy in zones 4-8, making them one of the more cold-tolerant plants in this family. They grow best in full sun to partial shade—the warmer the region the more shade they can handle. They need slightly acidic moderately moist, well-drained soil. (Rhododendrons grow natively on mountainsides in the Appalachians.) ‘Handy Man’ Purple will grow to a height and spread of 6-8 feet, so allow plenty of space when planting. Prune after flowering to control size and shape.
