Rhododendrons are spectacular spring flowering shrubs or trees that are suited to mild to temperate and cold climates. These plants are closely related to Azaleas and come in many varieties and colours. Warm climate rhododendrons have become readily available and are often called ‘vireya’. These varieties however, prefer rainforest-type conditions with moderate temperatures, good watering and perfect drainage.
