Small Leaved Rhododendrons

Small Leaved Rhododendrons such as cinnabarina and triflora will grow 75 - 150 cm in 10 years often with an upright habit. Their softer foliage and stunning bell shaped flowers mix well with larger rhododendrons. We have selected a range to avoid powdery mildew, but they do benefit from being planted where air circulates freely.
