Description: Autumn Twist™ Rhododendron is a super heat tough and lace bug resistant Azalea. It has stunning fuschia striped blooms that repeat in spring, summer and autumn. After 3 years of testing we are yet to see flower blight on this plant

Size: 1.25m high x 1m wide.

Planting Density: 1-3 plants per m², 1-2 plants per linear metre.

Uses: Ideal for specimen planting, mass planting and in gardens and borders.

Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates frost and moderate drought (as the plant matures it becomes more drought tolerant). Prefers well drained soils.

Care: Water well for the first year for the plant to fully establish and become more drought tolerant. Top up water in dry periods. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended) with the root ball slightly above soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. For best results prune after spring flowering.
