    Ravishing rounded trusses of pale-pink, funnel-shaped flowers with a deep red flare in late spring and early summer and glossy, dark green leaves. The flowers of this bushy, evergreen rhododendron gradually fade to light pink. Neat and dense in habit it makes an attractive all-year plant for a shrub border with humus-rich, acid soil.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
