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 single straight stems. 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.
