A compact, low growing Evergreen Azalea, this hardy shrub will give you year round colour and interest in the garden. Small enough to be planted in a container yet more than happy in a bed or border, Rhododendron 'Ardeur' will enhance your garden wherever you decide to plant it. Glossy, dark green foliage with a slightly open aspect provides a good backdrop for the vivid, bright orange-red blooms that appear in late spring and early summer. A low maintenance plant that will reward you for many years. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 100cm (39").
Grow Rhododendrons in moist, well drained, acid soil that has been enriched with plenty of well rotted organic matter. Choose a position in semi or dappled shade with shelter from cold drying winds. Many dwarf Rhododendrons can cope with a sunny position provided that the soil remains reliably moist.
Where soil conditions are alkaline, Rhododendron plants are best grown in patio containers, using a mix of ericaceous compost and a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Rhododendrons are surface rooting so it is important to avoid planting them too deeply.
