Calling Rhododendron experts.... But not the normal question?

Soil is slightly acid Rhoddos and Azaleas are thriving all over the garden, What i want to know is......Iv got room for 3 or 4 more big Rhoddos, height and spread dont matter.

I want a Purple one Red one and Pink one, Anyone got any reccomendations for those colours?

Been to the garden centre today and was spoilt for choice.



I have a beautilful purple one and leaves are varigated .


My red one is not large more ground cover.

Take a look at Glendoick Nursery they do some of the best rhododendrons both species and hybrids and they only ever sell good stock

But you have not really answered the question i want some reccomedations for those colours i mentioned.

If you look at the Glendoick website you will see images of all the rhodos. When do you want them to flower for a start off?
