Rhododendron ponticum

This vigorous shrub, a native of Asia Minor, was introduced to Western Europe in the 17th century. A dense, leggy plant, it blooms in May and June with large, open clusters of bell-shaped mauve or lilac-pink flowers. Especially good for hedges, windbreaks, or bottom-of-garden hedges.

Part Shade / Sun


In association with other Rhododendrons or acidic-loving shrubs such as Azaleas, Camellias, Pieris and Magnolias. Can be placed on a patio or terrace in a large container or in a partially shaded flowerbed.


Ideally in partial shade, protected from wind. Dig a hole three times the size of the root ball and half-fill it with an acidic compost. Place the plant (not too deeply) in the hole. Finish adding the compost, and water well.


Water regularly during flowering and dry weather. Add a specialised fertiliser each spring. Remove dead flowers.
