Rhododendron hybrid

 

Description: Semi-double, medium pink blooms that repeat flower, with heavy summer flowering in summer. Has a medium mounding growth habit with dark green foliage.

Dimensions: 1m high x 80cm wide.

Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates frost and moderate drought (as the plant matures it becomes more drought tolerant).

Soil Types: Well drained soils.

Uses: Specimen planting and mass plantings in gardens and borders.

Care: Water well for the first year for the plant to fully establish and become more drought tolerant. Top up water in dry periods. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended) with the root ball slightly above soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. For best results prune after spring flowering.
