Hardy Hybrid Rhododendrons for 2019 at the Garden Centre

Cunninghams WhiteA very old variety but still the most reliable white. As an extra bonus you often get a few autumn flowers too on this hybrid. The first white to flower in spring.

Really pollution tolerant and grows well in neutral or slightly alkaline soil. Great as a windbreak or hedge.

Half Dan LemRaised by the breeder of the same name this is a superb hybrid with a neat compact habit, tight red flowers and red stems throughout autumn and winter as the growth matures.
