Small trusses of dark-crimson, funnel-shaped flowers with a black flare in early summer and dark green leaves, retained all year. This robust, late-flowering, hybrid rhododendron is ideal for a shrub border or woodland-edge with humus-rich, acid soil.

Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
