Dwarf Rhododendrons

Tough alpine Rhododendrons for the front of borders which mainly flower in April.


These are mainly alpine varieties of rhododendron, and range from tiny gems such as Rhododendron keiskei 'Yaku Fairy', to larger growers up to heights of around 80 cm after 10 years. Being alpine plants, they prefer moist, cooler conditions, so hot sunny positions are best avoided. They mainly flower in April, and if space permits, they look great planted in groups of three.
