Rhododendron Rocket, a rhododendron hybrid, is a beautiful, dense, compact evergreen shrub that will give the garden colour all year round with big, dark green glossy foliage, that when they first emerge in spring are tinged with a bronze colour and darkening as they age.
Rhododendron Rocket will give exciting bloom in mid spring to early summer with clusters of single dark pink, frilly flowers that give a good contrast against the thick, dark foliage.
Rhododendron Rocket prefers acidic soil and enjoys partial sun and shade.
Rhododendron Rocket is a beautiful specimen that can look stunning in mixed borders or rockeries, and is ideal for planting in pots and containers for patios.
Don’t forget to regularly apply a good mix and mulch to keep the soil nice and moist. You should also feed with ericaceous feed to prevent foliage from yellowing and to help ensure the plant gets enough vitamins while flowering.
This rhododendron should reach a max height and spread of 1.2 to 1.8 metres.
