Three Rhododendron trusses.

Everywhere in the garden there seems to be Rhodos flowering and here are three I hope you will enjoy.

The other day I showed the truss of R. roxieanum var oreonastes on the verge of opening and here it is now in all its glory and it is all I hoped it would be. This is a ten out of ten species.

R. wee bee is a dwarf hybrid which has these attractive pale pink flowers.

One of the finest Rhodo hybrids for flowers is R.horizon monarch and it makes a magnificent specimen. When all its trusses are open I will feature it again but you can feast your eyes on its flowers for the time being.

What a beautiful contrast of colours on the flowers of R. 'Horizon Monarch'. I could really be tempted to look out for that one.

All looking splendid!

Thanks Jacinta, bear in mind it will be large growing.

Thanks Hazel.
