Dwarf Species

Suitable for the smaller garden and can be grown in containers. They will look good in mixed planting in rock gardens. There is a wide range of flower and leaf size and type. Most small leafed alpine types tend not to be so tolerant of areas with hot summers.

This site is purely for information purposes, so we can build up a picture of Rhododendron's people want, but can’t find. You can ask, as I hope you do so, and we will try to find. Thank you
