Rhododendron are renowned for displaying a spectacular show of brightly coloured flowers in spring, and make for a truly beautiful addition to any garden or landscape. They can be both evergreen and deciduous hedges, meaning you can find the right rhododendron hedge you desire, with the specific colour you’re after.

These hedging plants are great for not only providing colour and a focal point for your garden, but also for planting in masses, to create privacy and a truly spectacular colour show. Most of these plants will grow to 180cm x 180cm, and when paired with our beautiful azaleas, will provide you with the prettiest sight - especially in woodland settings.

They like well drained soil that is moist, which definitely has to be free of any lime. They also prefer being planted where there will be leaf mould or similar organic matter to help them grow. They are surface rooting plants, and really enjoy having plenty of pleat planted with them, as well as yearly tops ups.

Our wide range of bushy rhododendrons are ready for sale at four years old, and come in five litre pots, normally at 12-16 inches high and wide (excluding the pot). With a variety of rhododendron plants in stock throughout the year, there is sure to be one or more for everyone’s tastes and requirements. We nurture and care for these plants, as we do all of our stock, on our family-run nursery here in the heart of Kent, so you can rest assured that they’re going to arrive in great condition.

Take a look at our range of rhododendron plants below. If you have any questions or require any advice then please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our specialists on 01580 765600, or take a look at our contact page.
