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.
