These larger growing plants are unsurpassed for the beauty of their large flower trusses, they are equally at home in the dappled shade (not dense) of woodland plantings or in full sun. Ideal as specimens or in massed plantings if you are lucky enough to have space – or even as an informal hedge.
In most situations these Hybrid Rhododendrons will grow to 180cm x 180cm as a rough guide.
These 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 peat 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 30-50cm high (excluding the pot).
