    Funnel-shaped, pink to purple flowers in late spring, with a lighter pink centre, and glossy, dark green leaves. This evergreen rhododendron makes a perfect patio plant for a sunny courtyard garden. A particularly free-flowering variety, it copes well with wind and extremes of temperature. Requires humus-rich, acid soil or moist, well-drained, ericaceous compost.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

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