P.J. Mezitt Elite Star Rhododendron

A colorful year-round shrub
P.J. Mezitt Elite Star Rhododendron is a must-have for purple lovers, starting the spring season with big, beautiful clusters of lavender flowers and ending it with pretty purple leaves. This plant actually holds its color year-round, with the leaves returning to a green shade in spring.
Although rhododendrons and azaleas are very similar, there are a few differences. Why might you choose a rhododendron over a spring-blooming azalea? Rhododendrons are thicker and more substantial than azaleas, with larger leaves that remain evergreen throughout winter. This P.J. Mezitt Elite Star Rhododendron grows narrow leaves that turn plum-purple in fall, rounding out a long growing season of purple color.
