Description: Not the most Rhododendron-like of species, which has crept on me becoming a favourite in our garden. With distinct small stiff grey-green leaves contrasting with the cinnamon-red twiggs and branches. Valued for its early flowering even as early as December (as I write) sending out a few flowers during mild spells in winter. Peaking to a crochendo in March-April with terminal and axillary small funnel-shaped icing-pink flowers held in dens racemes almost smothering the foliage. Best grown in sun or light shade in a well drained retentive lime free soil. *** **** Only supplied as an open ground bare-rooted plant. Best taken in the cooler months as less watering is required.
