Dwarf Rhododendron Azaleas & Rhododendrons
These delightful slow growing little shrubs have many uses in the garden, perfect in containers or amongst other plants in a rockery and they make great space fillers towards the front of a flowerbed. They also make excellent ground cover plants.
All of our Dwarf Rhododendron plants are evergreen, we offer them as bushy young plants in 2 litre pots or slightly larger (they grow slowly!) plants in 4 litre pots, the plants supplied are normally as wide as they are tall, a trend that will continue as they grow in your garden.
Our Dwarf Rhododendrons collection is made up of 5 plants, one each of the following varieties to give a wide range of colours that will bring colour to your garden each spring for many years to come:
Baden Baden – Cherry red flowers in April on a compact rounded bush of deep green foliage, 50cm after 10 years.
Dora Amateis – Pink buds open to pure white flowers with pink markings, light green foliage. 60cm after 10 years.
Impeditum – Masses of small violet blue flowers in April and May, tiny aromatic grey green leaves. 40cm in 10 years.
Princess Anne – Beautiful soft yellow flowers in profusion during May above fresh green mound shaped foliage. 50cm in 10 years.
Wee Bee – Red buds open to tubular flowers, rosy pink on the inside, darker pink on the outside. Easy and tough. 40cm in 10 years.
(Occasionally we may substitute one or more plants with similar varieties should any be out of stock, but always in a very similar range of colours)

Dwarf Rhododendrons are true little gems of the garden with their brightly coloured spring flowers held on dwarf bushy plants that seldom exceed 60cm. The flowers are produced in ever increasing numbers each year as the plants develop making these plants a solid long-term investment. If space allows, they are at their best when planted in groups of three and with a mix of varieties it is possible to have flowers in succession from Mid to late Spring. They also go well with evergreen Azaleas.
Although often seen planted in the dappled shade of a woodland setting, these tough plants will succeed in a moderate amount of sun. Rhododendrons are ericaceous plants and so they should have acid soil that is well prepared and free draining. (Check to see if they are growing in nearby gardens if you aren’t sure about your soil). If your soil is alkaline, they can still be enjoyed in your garden if grown in containers or raised beds filled with Ericaceous compost.
Dwarf Rhododendrons dislike cultivation immediately around them (their roots are very close to the surface) but they do benefit from a light mulch each Spring to conserve moisture. This will also discourage weeds making these plant both beautiful, and very low maintenance.
