Flowers of one of the most beautiful rhododendrons

Rhododendron 'Marie Fortie'

Marie Fortie bears unusual coloured flowers that are dark red /purple, funnel shaped, grouped in bunches with a deep purple spot in the throat, something not seen in rhododendrons. It is a medium sized evergreen rhododendron with a broad upright bushy shape flowering from May to June. Ultimate height and spread 2m x 4m in 10-20 years.
