Rhododendron 'Hoppy'


Rhododendron 'Hoppy'

This one is now in full bloom, and as you can see, the lilac blooms fade to a very pale shade.

That's gorgeous! Does it have a perfume too?

Absolutely beautiful, Karen. How high this one will be?

7 Jun, 2013

 

No waddy, sadly not. It's usually white ones that have perfume I find...apart from the rh. Lutea or deciduous azalea which is perfuming my whole garden at the moment!

So delightful K.....

Katarina...about a metre high. The Yakushimanum hybrids are apparently all fairly short growing, so good for smaller gardens. :)

Thanks Angela!

I think its name should be Happy not Hoppy - it looks so happy.

I would have to agree...what a daft name for a plant...Hoppy...daft.

The sun has bleached mine and it's now almost pure white, however the blooms are staying on for a long time,must be about three weeks.
Karen I am not going to say how tall it is but we could loose Jamie.lol

Lol! I don't mind! This one can grow if it wants! Keep your eye on Jamie though...don't want him having another sulk!

This is a beauty isn't it.

Thank you both. My Nancy Evans has been a mass of yellow this year, but the leaves look very stressed. Mind you, it was moved out of the flooded area last year and the one thing Rhody's can't stand as much as Lime is waterlogging. If it doesn't survive, I shall probably replace it, it's a beauty.
