Rhododendron (PJM Group) is a series of rhododendron hybrids resulting from crosses between Rhododendron carolinianum and Rhododendron dauricum var. sempervirens. These hybrids are vigorous, compact, rounded, small-leaved, broadleaf evergreen shrubs that are noted for having exceptional winter hardiness. ‘P.J.M. Elite’ was introduced around 1987. It typically grows to 5-6’ tall and as wide and features clusters of lavender-pink blooms in early April. Elliptic glossy dark green leaves turn reddish purple in autumn. Best grown in acidic, humusy, organically rich, moisture-retentive but well-drained soils in part shade. Prefers a sun dappled shade. Foliage may scorch in full sun
