Rhododendron 'Garden Rainbow'
Rhododendron "Garden Rainbow" is a really cool plant. While it is a deciduous azalea (meaning it loses its leaves during the winter), it makes up for it with incredible blooms during the spring. The blooms start off yellow and change to orange and pink over the course of a few days. The result is an array of colors. While it looks tropical it's really cold hardy and probably would not do well without a nice and chilly winter to go dormant! Sometimes us northerners get to have beautiful plants that you can't have in warm climates!
