Dramatic merlot-red, ruffled blooms emerge on a neat, mounded plant in May. Deep red flowers against glossy, dark green foliage create a show-stopping explosion in your landscape. 'Dark Lord' is a conversation piece, not your average Rhody! This medium height, rounded evergreen is a favorite of bees and other pollinators!
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:
Likes moist, well-drained soil, mulch, and winter wind protection. Responds well to a specialized Azalea/Rhodie, acid fertilizer application. Prune to shape in summer immediately after blooming subsides.
