Dwarf Rhododendron Whispering Rose is an incredibly attractive shrub with cherry red bell-shaped flowers which emerge in early springtime. An interesting feature about this species of Rhododendron is that its rounded dark leaves create a neat and compact shape – making them perfect for traditional planters or troughs. The plant is particularly easy to grow and requires very little tending to, apart from a little deadheading after the plant has flourished over the spring weeks. The leaves of the pretty flower also transform from a luxurious bronze colour as young foliage, into the deep rich green coloured leaf that the plant is so recognized for. Dwarf Rhododendron Whispering Rose grows best in dappled shade. The compact bushy variety likes to grow in an acidic soil which is kept moist. Fill a tired old rockery with Whispering Rose and enjoy its eye catching cherry-red hue which can be admired just as much from a distance, as it can up close.
