Rhododendron x 'Anah Kruschke'


Chosen for its bright, abundant, and massive clusters of red-purple blooms with deep burgundy-purple splotches on the dorsal petals, Rhododendron ‘Anah Kruschke’ has way more to offer than its dense evergreen foliage and open, multi-stemmed habit. Bred and selected by Oregonian Franz Kruschke and named after his wife, Anah, the hybrid Rhododendron ‘Anah Kruschke’ is the prodigal child of Rhododendron ponticum and Rhododendron ‘Purple Splendor’. With a rather small stature of 5-6’, ‘Anah Kruschke’ Azalea makes an adorable specimen in the woodland garden, an accent planting within the Rhododendron collection, or even a charming border planting that stays evergreen all year with a pop of explosive color from late May into June. The flowers invite both butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden, while rabbits tend to disregard ‘Anah Kruschke’ Azaleas altogether.
