Buy Rhododendron 'Cunningham's White' hybrid rhododendron: Masses of stunning, white blooms. Suitable for most soil types

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

    Marvellous full trusses of white, funnel-shaped flowers with yellow or greenish-brown markings in late-spring and dark green leaves, retained all-year. This lovely, old hybrid 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.

  • 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.

I'd buy this plant again.


We bought the plant last year and it thrived in its original planter, developing rich healthy and glossy foliage and glorious blossoms. Unfortunately, at the turn of the year it showed many holes in the upper layers of its foliages which we still have to investigate and to find a remedy for.

Hi, I have a Cunningham's White in a large container, and have had it for about 2 years but I hasn't blossomed once. It is in the right soil, it has buds but they don't seem to bloom. What am I doing wrong ?


Hello, These are quite shallow rooted and as they tend to develop their buds in the previous year, it is crucial that they are kept well fed and watered - particularly when grown in a pot. The only other thing that is worth considering is that although they will tolerate some shade, they tend to stop flowering in very heavy shade.
