Grown as a standard, this dazzling Rhododendron Leo boasts stunningly vibrant clusters of funnel-shaped scarlet flowers in April and May. Beautifully glossy, dark green elongated leaves form a dense, compact evergreen shrub. The perfect backdrop for showing off the fabulous flowers and just the thing to bring a dash of spring colour to your patio. The soil should be on the acidic side and rich in humus and always moist which will allow established plants to withstand direct mid-day and afternoon sun. Use ericaceous compost if growing in a pot, or add it to the planting hole in the border. Rhododendrons are low-maintenance shrubs that prefer bright to dappled shade or partial shade, avoiding morning sunlight which can damage buds. Keep well watered. Supplied as an established standard plant in a 19cm pot.
