This unusual Rhododendron produces pale mauve purple buds from April, which open out to magnificent, wavy-edged white flowers marked with deep wine purple, with a spray of decorative anthers in the centre. The spectacular flower trusses are made up of up to nine flowers and last until late June. Each truss rests on a neat bed of shiny dark green ovate leaves arranged in a rosette. It is a substantial shrub, suited to the back of the border in a sunny or partially shaded location, preferably in well-drained soil. Eventual height 2m. Supplied in a 13cm pot.
