Here is a fantastic PALLET DEAL of 30 choice 3 litre sized Compact  Rhododendrons that will grow to around 80-100cm in 10 years. We have grown these plants in 3 litre pots here on our nursery and they are about 20-30cm in size. They are first grade plants and look great now, and will soon grow to make a wonderful colourful addition to your garden and are suitable for containers, smaller gardens or for the front of a border. They are all tough and hardy plants that will grow well throughout the UK and Northern Europe. We recommend planting about 100-120cm apart, and they will provide a dense colourful border within a few years. Planting in groups of 3 of each variety looks really good, and they will soon form one large clump.

Compact Rhododendrons mainly flower in May and often have interesting foliage. We have selected ten varieties that compliment each other in any border. Planting in groups of 3 will give a greater impact more quickly. They can be planted individually around your garden or will look superb in mass planting.

3 x Anuschka: Bright red buds open to gorgeous rosey pink flowers in late May.

3 x Barbarella: Lovely orange, pink, red and yellow colour flowers during May.

3 x Elizabeth Red Foliage: Large scarlet trumpet shaped flowers in April. This form features burgundy red leaves.

3 x Golden Everest: Soft light red in bud opening to strong yellow bell shaped flowers with a discrete reddish blotch in May/June.

3 x Hydon Velvet: Pale pink flowers in a compact truss in mid-May. Cinnamon indumentum on underside of leaves.

3 x Lupinenberg Laguna: Purple buds open to deep mauve flowers with green yellow speckling, in late May.

3 x September Red: Pure red coloured flowers with thin brown markings. An interesting variety which flowers most years in September, and again in May.

3 x Silberwolke AGM: Pinky purple in bud opening to frilled ice-white flowers, spotted yellow green in the throat. Late May.

3 x Sneezy AGM: Rose pink flowers, spotted red in domed trusses. Late May.

3 x taliense 'Honigduft': Lovely foliage. An intense scent of honey, especially in the sun. Creamy white flowers April-May.

Good to know

Dome-shaped plants ideal for pots and small borders, growing to 75-100cm (2.5-3 foot) in 10 years. These are mainly of Rhododendron williamsianum and Rhododendron yakushimanum hybrids.

R. williamsianum hybrids normally flower in April and are tolerant of slightly higher pH, which can be useful for those growing on neutral soils. They have small clusters of bell-shaped flowers which hang down, which contrast well with other rhododendrons. Their rounded leaves makes them a great foliage plant all year, and softens the landscape in larger planting schemes. Some varieties can be shy to flower as a young plant, but will normally flower in the year after planting out.

'Yak' hybrids mainly flower in May, with a small rounded truss of flowers, often bright in colour when first opening, but always fading paler over the next couple of weeks. These are typically very tough plants, which are ideal for the front of border, or for more formal situations Alternatively, yak hybrids are suitable for growing in pots and containers; re-pot every 3 years for best performance. Most varieties will bud up and flower as a 3 litre plant.

They will take sun or shade, but dappled is best. Compact rhododendrons like moist acidic soil, with good drainage, and plenty of organic matter such as leaf-mould and added ericaceous compost. Plant no deeper than the top of the rootball, and dig in plenty of good ericaceous compost around the sides. For a guide to plant spacing, use the height we give in 10 years as a guide to the distance between each plant, so this is about 1 plant per m² Give a teaspoon of slow-release feed at the 3 litre size, rising to a small handful full for mature plants. They are not normally nibbled by deer and rabbits. Pruning is not recommended, but wayward shoots can be cut back straight after flowering to improve shape.

Please note: Most of these varieties are dome shaped plants, often wider than their height. Specimen size plants (eg 80-90cm) will be measured by their largest measurement which is typically the spread of the plant.

The Basics

Ideal soil

Acidic soil, good organic content, pH 4.5-6.0. Inkarho range of rhododendrons will tolerate soils up to pH7.5

Sun or Shade

Light dappled shade is best for most varieties.


Refer to hardiness rating. Give young plants protection.

Site Selection

Avoid close to trees, roots, invasive weeds, walls, hot patios, dry banks and waterlogged soils. Do not use weed matting or stone mulch.

Plant spacing

Use the height shown in 10 years as a guide to the distance between each plant. Allow room for plant to fill out. If planting closer for instant impact, be prepared to move plants after a few years.


  • 3 litre pot, dig in 10-20 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 7.5 litre pot, dig in 20-30 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 70-80cm specimen, dig in 60 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 100-120cm specimen, dig in 120 litres of ericaceous compost.

Planting depth

Plant high in the ground, with the top of the rootball visible.


Slow-release ericaceous feed recommended in March and straight after flowering.


Recommended every few years.


The key ingredient! Keep moist all season, especially the critical time at end of June for flower bud initiation. Tap water is better than no water. Heavy dose at least once per week in dry weather.


Ensure good drainage in winter, especially with yellow flowering varieties. Avoid waterlogged sites.


Rhododendrons and Camellias: Not normally required. Tidy wayward shoots after flowering.

Evergreen azaleas and Bloombux can be clipped into a low hedge.

Magnolias and Acers: Formative pruning when young to shape into a tree or bush.


Remove old flower-heads, particularly on young or weak plants.
