    This low-growing rhododendron forms a dense spreading mound of dark green foliage that provides year round structure. In late spring and early summer however this foliage is virtually smothered with masses of small lilac flowers. Its perfect for pots, front of border positions and rockeries, but it also lends itself particularly well to Japanese-style planting schemes, where it is used to form low cushion-like domes.

  • 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.
