Description
 
Rare and elusive in commerce, this is a denizen of the New Jersey Pine Barrens and moist areas along the Eastern Seaboard.  When in flower, it always strikes us as looking more extra-terrestrial than a product of our own earthly evolution.  Bizarre pink cones of small packed flowers studded with blue anthers are just a giggle.  Rich moist soil in some shade.  This is Federally listed as endangered and threatened.  Our plant was received many years ago from the Rhododendron Species Botanic Garden who grew it from seed and we have propagated it like mad here at the nursery so our conscience is clear.
