Standards

Standard Rhododendrons were popular during the first half of the last century, and now we are finding renewed interest. We grow a limited range of  Rhododendrons and Azaleas as Standards, grown on a single straight stem to form a lollipop type head. There are various options for the heights of the stems, so please refer to the individual descriptions. These are ideal for patio pots or formal situations (and better looking than a Bay tree!).  They require a good stake at the time of planting to prevent any wind damage.
