Why We Love It

Rhododendron 'Percy Wiseman' is a compact evergreen shrub. In May the eye-catching dark pink buds produce wonderful peachy cream flowers with pink edges, that fade to white as they mature.

Planting Calendar

Plant in March, April, May, September, October, November.

Planting and Care

The Rhododendron 'Percy Wiseman' needs acid soil (pH 4.5 to 6). If you don't have that in your garden, grow it in a container. It grows best in partial shade with some shelter from the cold.

Into the Ground

Plant the Rhododendron 'Percy Wiseman' in October, March or April. You'll need some acid-rich organic matter, your spade and a watering tool.

  1. Mix your organic matter into the soil.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball. When the hole is filled, the rootball should be visible at the top of the soil.
  3. Backfill your hole.
  4. Lay 8 cm of mulch of chipped conifer bark or another acidic material on top of the soil.
  5. Water with rainwater. Each spring, add a new layer of mulch and use ericaceous fertiliser.

Into a Pot

The Rhododendron 'Percy Wiseman' is perfect for containers. Make sure your pot has plenty of drainage holes. Take your spade, some ericaceous loam-based potting compost and your watering tool and you're ready to go.

  1. Add compost to your container, leaving space for your plant.
  2. Place your plant inside the container so that the top of the rootball is visible on the surface of the compost.
  3. Fill your pot with compost. Stop approximately 5 cm below the top of the pot.
  4. Use rainwater to water.
  5. Re-pot in fresh compost every two years. Every other year, replace the top 5 cm of compost.
