Purple Gem Rhododendron (Rhododendron 'Purple Gem') is a compact flowering shrub prized for its deep purple flowers arriving in mid spring. Its small size, olive green foliage with rippled edges, and contrasting violet blooms make this an excellent plant for any garden or patio.

Purple Gem Rhododendron is a hardy evergreen shrub that grows at a slow rate but can live up to 40 years. These hardy shrubs are extremely versatile and do well in a variety of environments, but specifically they thrive in colder regions.

The Purple Gems prefer rich, acidic, well-drained soil and require full to partial sun. In fall, the olive green leaves transition to a beautiful bronze and green tone, giving the Purple Gem year-round interest. As a dwarf evergreen shrub, they stay relatively small, growing up to 3 feet tall and wide.

When you buy Purple Gem Rhododendron online, you can use them as border plantings, landscape accents, or in containers on patios.
