Rhododendron ‘Wilgen’s Ruby’ is a dense, but compact variety with a pleasing rounded habit, growing to around 1.2 – 1.5metres. This evergreen shrub is cloaked with dark green leaves that creates the perfect backdrop for its deep ruby-red flowers. The vibrant blooms flower from late spring to early summer in a magnificent display.
Recommended for: Good red with tidy habit.
Easy to grow.
Ideal position: Most garden situations.
As with all Rhodos a good moist acidic soil is required or alternatively use an Ericaceous compost when planting and use a specific Ericaceous fertiliser to keep those magnificent blooms coming.
