Why We Love It

The gorgeous white of the Rhododendron 'Rose Greeley' is a striking feature in any garden or other outdoor space.

This compact and dense evergreen shrub is popular for its funnel-shaped large blooms and small glossy dark green leaves.

The clusters of flowers will arrive in early to mid-spring and return on schedule every year as long as you remove dead or damaged growth to encourage repeat flowering.

Alongside its elegant appearance it has a light fragrance and tends to hold its foliage well through winter.

Your rhododendron will look impressive in beds and borders or planted against a trellis or patio wall as a focal point.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

The Rhododendron 'Rose Greeley' likes full sun or partial shade and fertile, well-drained soil. It's generally easy to grow but will do well with some extra feed in early spring and midsummer.

Into the Ground

Grab a spade, a watering tool and some ericaceous (acidic) compost. Then, choose a location that has a good amount of space, away from other flowers or trees.

  1. Gently remove your rhododendron from the pot it arrived in.
  2. Dig a hole that's twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  3. Pop the plant into the hole, so that the top of the rootball is slightly below soil level.
  4. Add in your ericaceous compost, firming it up as you go.
  5. Water your rhododendron thoroughly so that moisture reaches the rootball.

Into a Pot

For this, you'll need a spade, a watering can and some compost. Be sure to choose a pot that will give your rhododendron enough room to fill out.

  1. Sprinkle some compost and feed into the bottom of your chosen pot.
  2. Add the Rhododendron, holding it in place as you backfill soil.
  3. Give it a heavy watering and repeat at least once per week in dry weather.
