Rhododendron – Madame Masson, Nova Zembla, Hybrid Purple available.
This variety belongs to the group of Large-Flowered Evergreen Hybrid Rhododendrons. These are the drama queens of Spring and early Summer, producing stunning displays of showy flowers in big trusses against a backdrop of bold evergreen foliage.
They are ericaceous plants i.e. they require acidic to neutral soils (pH7 or lower) and generally will not thrive in more alkaline conditions (i.e. high in lime, pH7.5 or higher). Being woodland plants, they require moist but well drained soil that is rich in organic matter as well as the dappled shade and shelter of other trees and shrubs. They are also useful subjects for a sheltered North facing border.
