Plant of the month for august…

Rhododendron sinonuttallii

A tender species from NE India and NW Yunnan, China.

A superb foliage plant with leaves a metallic purple when unfolding. Add to that huge, fragrant, white trumpet like flowers in late July and August and you have a “must have” Rhododendron worthy of any collection.

Easily one of my favourite plants in the garden a real stunner.
