'President Roosevelt' is an unusual Rhododendron in that it has variegated foliage.
These colourful leaves are green around the outside and yellow in the middle.
The abundant flowers are also two-tone.
They have white centres and wide margins of bright reddish-pink.
From a distance they appear to be red.
The growth habit can be a bit straggly if not lightly pruned.
Picking the flowers for a vase is always a good way to prune plants.
This variety usually grows to approximately 1.5M.
