  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost in a pot)
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May - June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Domed trusses of small, green-eyed white flowers, form in good numbers at the tips of the woody stems of this compact evergreen shrub. They do appear a little later than many of the other rhododendrons, so this is a option if you want to help extend the season into summer. The leaves are quite distinctive too, being a relatively light green and slender. It looks beautiful in a woodland setting, where the flowers really stand out in the dappled shade, or it can be potted up using ericaceous compost and placed on a partially shady patio.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply, and apply a generous mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
