This is a lovely collection of 5 litre sized Rhododendrons that will grow to 1.5 - 1.75 metres in 10 years. We have grown these plants in 5 litre pots here on our nursery and they are about 40cm in size, and nice and bushy. They are first grade plants and look great now, and will soon grow to make a wonderful colourful addition to your garden. We recommend planting about 1.5 - 1.75 metres apart, and they will provide a dense colourful border within a few years.

We have selected four varieties that compliment each other in any border. They can be planted individually around your garden or in a line for hedging. 

Dramatic Dark: Dark violet flowers, with purple shades in centre, a black blotch, and contrasting white stamens on a tight rounded truss in late May.

Gomer Waterer AGM: Rosy-lilac buds open to pinky white flowers flushed mauve pink at edges with yellow-brown flare. Flowering early June.

Nova Zembla: Dark red flowers with darker spotting. Dark green foliage on a sturdy upright plant. Heat and sun tolerant, and very hardy. May-June.

Walkure: Large bright rose pink flowers, with ruby-pink frilly edging, and darker markings in the throat in late May.

This offer is for online purchase only, but you can 'Click and Collect' at the checkout if you wish to collect from our nursery.

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.

Shelter

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.

Compost

  • 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.

Feeding

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

Mulch

Recommended every few years.

Water

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.

Drainage

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

Pruning

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.

Deadheading

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