Rhododendron Bollywood (‘Farrow’) (PBR)


5 year guarantee
3 litre pot £24.99
3 litre pot £24.99

This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost in a pot)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April and May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The variegated foliage of this recently released rhododendron offers colour and interest through the best part of the year, but it's when the reddish pink flowers appear in mid- to late spring that it really dazzles. A compact cultivar, 'Bollywood' is ideal for larger pots, but will also look great when used as an accent plant, or filling gaps towards the from of the border. It's a semi-evergreen shrub, so it may shed some (or all) of its foliage in winter if grown in colder regions.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply, and apply a generous mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
