This listing is for a large plant in a 4 litre pot. The plants are 4-5 years old, approx. 60-80cm ( 24" to 32" ) tall with multiple branches and will flower at the appropriate time of year. The Rhododendrons are perhaps the most important and diverse group of plants in the world with over 1000 different species. They contain some of the most noble and stunning of all plants and when planted in well designed landscapes are almost unrivaled in their impact in spring. The hydrida group contains many different varieties and cultivars that have been bred over the years. They are large and faster growing than the yakushimanum varieites. Rhododendron hybrida Goldflimmer is compact and free flowering. Lovely lilac mauve flowers with orange brown spots in the throat, cover the plant in May and June. Foliage has a distinct central gold variegation. One important fact to note with virtually all Azaleas and Rhododendrons is that they are very intolerant of chalk/lime. Even small amounts will turn them chlorotic and unhealthy. Regular use of a suitable tonic (sequestered iron) will combat the effects of low levels of lime but it is far better to plant in lime free acid soils. Azaleas and Rhododendrons have shallow fibrous roots so an annual mulching with organic matter is very beneficial. This is best applied in autumn. This plant can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden or a container. If planting in a pot or other container. Use a good quality ericaceous John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12-14 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
