Buy Rhododendron 'Nova Zembla' hybrid rhododendron: Vivid red flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil or ericaceous compost
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Rounded trusses of deep red, funnel-shaped flowers in mid and late spring with attractive dark green leaves, retained all year. This vigorous, large flowered rhododendron copes well with extremes of temperature. Ideal for a well-drained border with humus-rich, acid soil, each of the lavish flowers has a distinctive violet-brown mark in the centre.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery 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.

Perfect for a large pot

Planted this in a large pot a year ago as our soil is not acidic and it has established itself very well. It didn't flower until mid June but was worth the wait with a profusion of flowers which lasted well

Great Service

This Rhododendron was bought as a present for my wife, as this variety blooms in April to coincide with her birthday. It now lives in a large pot at the front of the house waiting for the spring sunshine. It hasn't flowered yet as 2017 will be its first spring with us. The plant arrived very well packaged and in very promptly. Crocus are the best plant retailer I have yet found in the web.
