Unusual pretty light rose-pink tubular upward-pointing flowers on a dome-shaped bush flowering in May. This is a very striking and free-flowering plant that is vigorous. It is relatively drought tolerant, so although it prefers moisture, it will tolerate being planted on drier soils or near to trees. Height 60-80cm in 10 years.
Dwarf Rhododendrons don't mind the sun but they hate too much heat, so do avoid reflected heat from South facing walls and patios, particularly if planting in containers. One of the 'bird' series of dwarf hybrids bred at Glendoick in Scotland.
