Product Description

The stunning blooms of Rhododendron 'Elsie Straver' appear in May, and are produced in large, showy clusters, with each pastel-yellow flower is distinctively marked at the centre with red.

The flowers contrast beautifully with the glossy, rounded leaves which cover this well branched shrub all year, forming a tall, upright evergreen shrub over time.

A great choice for an exotic planting scheme on acid soils, or for adding colour and structure to mixed borders, 'Elsie Straver' will grow to around 175cm (68in) high and wide.

Rhododendrons are low-maintenance shrubs that will perform superbly provided you plant them well and keep them well-watered. They mostly prefer bright to dappled shade or partial shade, avoiding morning sunlight which can damage buds.

As Rhododendron roots are shallow, spreading to sides in search for nutrients, they shouldn’t be planted them too deeply - remember that they often grow in shallow cracks on mountainsides. Soil does need to be on the acidic side and rich in humus, cool and always moist which will allow established plants to withstand direct mid-day and afternoon sun.

Supplied as an established plant in a 4L pot, 'Elsie Straver' will reach H2m (6ft) x W2m (6ft) and suits container growing perfectly where they can be moved out of the early morning sun.
