Rhododendron Collection 4L (3 Pack)
A collection of pink, white and red Rhododendrons, with exceptional flowers and good, evergreen foliage.
'Nova Zembla' produces large clusters of exotic-looking blooms in early May,. Each bright red flower is distinctively marked at the centre with violet-brown. If positioned in full sun, the blooms fade to a strong pink which is equally eye-catching. A great choice for an exotic planting scheme on acid soils, or adding colour and structure to mixed borders and containers. H175cm x W175cm. (5.75ft)
A large-flowered garden Hybrid, Rhododendron ‘Pink Lady’ is an evergreen shrub with voluminous, deep-pink flowers in spring. Contrasting with the gorgeous flowers, the evergreen leaves are glossy, olive-green and provide a good foil for other plants such as colourful perennials. Ideal to provide masses of colour it can be kept in a pot (remember to use ericaceous compost). H 250cm x W 250cm. (8.25ft)
‘Cunninghams White’ produces full trusses of white, funnel-shaped flowers with yellow to greenish-brown markings on the upper petals in late-spring. Evergreen, this rhododendron is understandably popular, due to its tolerance of poor or near-neutral soil. Compact and robust it's ideal for growing on a boundary, for use as a windbreak or screen. H 250cm x W 250cm (8.25ft).
For improved and more abundant flowering, dead-head faded blooms where possible and avoid shade which reduces blooming.
Rhododendrons are low-maintenance shrubs that will perform superbly provided you plant them well and keep them well-watered. They mostly prefer bright to dappled shade or partial shade, avoiding morning sunlight which can damage buds.
Rhododendron roots are shallow, spreading to sides in search for nutrients, so never plant them too deep - remember that they often grow in shallow cracks on mountainsides. Soil does need to be on the acidic side and rich in humus, cool and always moist which will allow established plants to withstand direct mid-day and afternoon sun.
