Rhododendron occidentale

One of the finest deciduous azalea species and the parent of many desirable hybrids, hailing from S Oregon and N California and making a medium sized shrub up to approx' 1.5m tall. Sweetly scented pale-pink to creamy-white widely funnel-shaped flowers in June. A tough species best suited to a sunny or semi-shade position with good air movement, to avoid mildew on the foliage late season. Very good autumn colour, turning yellow, scarlet or crimson. For acid soil, not too bone dry, though I've seen thousands in the wild in S. Oregon on very dry open sunny mountainsides.

Pot size: 3L
