Rhododendron "Blue boy"


Rhododendron "Blue boy"

People either love or hate this color. If you love purple, this is very nice cultivar. A heavy blooming, upright and open growing and well-shaped. 'Blue Boy' has relatively long, narrow, dark green leaves.
I have it besides yellow magnolia and it looks great together. This rhododendron is about 4 years old.

I love this colour! I once bought elegant and simple dress of this colour when I was in the USA and I wore it almost 10 years! They were undestroyable and so elegant, because they were of a very good quality.
This is very nice rhodie, but I am almost sure, they don´t have it in our nurseries. It is American sort of rhodie, isn´t it?

Most of the clothes on this continent are now made in China. Even the designer lables. The good quality is on decline...american consumer does not want to pay for quality, they want to replace every year. Keep the economy going.
