Buy Rhododendron 'Blue Peter' hybrid rhododendron: Early summer lavender flowers

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil or ericaceous compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tight, rounded trusses of frilly lavender-blue flowers, each with a prominent purple flare add colour to the woodland garden or partially shaded border in early summer. The large, dark green leaves are retained all year, so even when not in flower, this beautiful evergreen will help add structure and visual impact to the garden. It's robust and easy to grow, provided you have soil with an acidic pH (simple test kits are available), otherwise a large pot filled with ericaceous compost will suffice - just make sure it is kept well watered.

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

Hello, Yes, Hydrangeas tend to flourish in clay soils - provided they are relatively freely draining and do not remain waterlogged for any length of time.
