    An improved 'PJM' rhododendron!

    A rich pinkish-lavender, heavily flowering form of 'PJM' rhododendron, 'Amy Cotta' is a slow growing, semi-dwarf form perfect for sites which call for a compact flowering evergreen.  Dense, azalea-like foliage is smaller and darker than that of 'PJM'; plentiful ruffled blooms cover the plant in early spring.
