Quick Overview:

This variety belongs to the group of Rhododendron yakushimanum Evergreen Hybrids. Everyone should find room for at least one of these in their garden! These stunning hybrids are very compact in growth but have large blooms and very attractive foliage. Flowers borne in late Spring are typically a deeper colour in bud and opening to the most beautiful shades which are strongly influenced by their yakushimanum parentage. They are perfect subjects for the small garden and are suitable for growing in pots.

Best grown in acidic, humusy, organically rich, medium moisture, moisture-retentive but well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers a sun dappled shade. Plant in a location protected from strong winter winds. Good soil drainage is essential (doesn’t like “wet feet”). Poor drainage inevitably leads to root rot, therefore raised beds/plantings should be considered in heavy clay soils. Shallow, fibrous root systems (do not cultivate around plants) will benefit greatly from a mulch (e.g., wood chips, bark or pine needles) to help retain moisture and stabilize soil temperatures. Roots must never be allowed to dry out. Acidify soils as needed. Clip off spent flower clusters immediately after bloom as practicable.
