I had been out for most of the day today and went out into the garden at 4.30pm to find the first of my collection of small hybrid rhododendrons had come in to flower. What a surprise - especially when the picture below shows how it looked yesterday.
Rhododendron Moonstone Yellow, shown above, has bell-shaped creamy-yellow flowers in April-May. It is semi-dwarf and dome forming with attractive rounded leaves. It is classed as hardy and grows to 3ft (90cm). I found the label for this plant during my recent sort of plant labels. This one had the name of the Nursery on the back but I already knew it as all my rhododendrons have come from Glendoick Garden Centre . It is a specialist Nursery growing and breeding rhododendrons which is also known worldwide for plant hunting expeditions.
