Splendid, rounded trusses of funnel-shaped, peach-pink and cream flowers in mid- and late spring, fading to creamy-white, and pale green leaves. This compact, evergreen rhododendron is extremely free-flowering. One of the most popular 'yak' hybrids it's suitable for a sunny, shrub border with humus-rich, acid soil or a large container filled with ericaceous compost. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic 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 too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
