    Rounded trusses of deep red, funnel-shaped flowers in mid and late spring with attractive dark green leaves, retained all year. This vigorous, large flowered rhododendron copes well with extremes of temperatures. Ideal for a well-drained border with humus-rich, acid soil, each of the lavish flowers has a distinctive violet-brown mark in the centre.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
