Instant impact in a sunny border or on the patio in a good looking container, this Standard Rhododendron will delight for many years to come. A hardy, evergreen shrub that has been grown to approximately 50cm (20") tall and then allowed to form a ball of large leathery leaves which will be topped with impressive Pink blooms in May. Easy to look after, giving you a great display with little effort. 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.
