One of the famous Seven Dwarfs group of hybrids. Bold red, long lasting flowers. Deep and glossy red, long lasting flowers with dark brown spots.
This and Titian Beauty are the best true red yakushimanum hybrids.
Grows to 1m x 1m.
Flowers throughout May.
A low growing hybrid but with big showy flowers bred from Rhododendron yakushimanum, a glorious species with extremely pretty flowers. Its particular interest to breeders is that the buds are a lovely deep pink but open to a soft white. This colour change is obvious in most of these hybrids.
It is different to some of the other evergreen dwarf hybrids in having larger, more handsome leaves.
These hybrids are perfect for pots and patios as well as in the border in the garden.
