Description
The ‘Rustica’ hybrids are distinctive for their small, usually double flowers. These deciduous Azalea Group hybrids were mostly bred in the 19th century, but remain well worth growing today. Rhododendron 'Rustica Hybrid Red' boasts a fine display of bright red blooms in late spring and early summer, above its fresh green foliage. As summer ends, the leaves provide excellent autumn colour, delivering good seasonal interest. This Rhododendron is extremely hardy and flourishes in a sunny spot. Perfect for the edges of woodland gardens and sunny acid borders. In gardens without acid soil, they make superb container plants for the patio. Height and spread: 200cm (78”).

How to Grow
Grow Azaleas 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 azaleas can cope with a sunny position provided that the soil remains reliably moist. Where soil conditions are alkaline, Azalea plants are best grown in patio containers, using a mix of ericaceous compost and a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Azaleas are surface rooting so it is important to avoid planting them too deeply.
More Info
Water Azalea plants regularly throughout the growing season. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Feed Azaleas in spring with a slow release fertiliser for acid-loving plants. Protect plants from cold winter winds. Border grown Azaleas will appreciate an autumn mulch to protect their shallow roots from winter cold. Take care not to mound the mulch too close to the stem as this may cause it to rot.
