Kangaro is a large-flowered hybrid rhododendron bred by Holger Hachmann in 1994. It produces dark violet flowers with deep burgundy red, almost black dots on the upper lip. Blooming begins from the second decade of May. Evergreen leaves are obovate, dark green, flat, and partially glossy. It grows into a large shrub that becomes wider than tall.

In order to keep the plants looking nice and clean dead-head where possible. The roots are shallow, spreading to sides in search for nutrients. Never plant them too deep. The soil has to be acidic, rich in humus, cool and always moist. Ideal soil mixture is peat with lime-free, light garden soil topped with leave-mould. Use selective fertilizers for rhododendrons only. It is best suited for partially shaded locations sheltered from cuttings winds and strong winter sunlight that might burn the flower buds. Hardiness is rated to abt. -23°C (USDA zone 6) but is expected to go much lower.
