Why We Love It

Turn your garden into an early spring spectacular by planting Rhododendron ‘Elizabeth Hobbie’, an RHS award winner. 

This showy ornamental dwarf shrub is perfect for a pot display or rockery.

In April, it will erupt in impressive clusters of true red, slightly frilled flowers offset by beautifully rounded leaves.

Best in acidic, well-drained soil, rhodies are perfect for shady woodland or Japanese-style gardens.

Once settled, this compact shrub is incredibly low maintenance and its evergreen leaves will add depth and interest all year round.

Planting and Care

Plant your rhododendron in the ground or in a pot.

Into the Ground

  • Partly fill a container with peat-free, ericaceous compost.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and place it in the new container.
  • Backfill the hole and firm the plant in.
  • Give your plant a water to help it get settled in.
  • Mulch annually, replacing the top layer of compost.
  • Into a Pot

    1. Choose a cool spot and dig a hole big enough for the root ball.
    2. Remove the plant from its pot and pop it in the ground.
    3. Backfill the hole and firm it in.
    4. Give your plant a good watering.
    5. Mulch the ground around your plant annually with ericaceous compost or leaf mould.
