Rhododendrons are best known for their spectacular clusters of large, showy and often fragrant flowers.
These are typically tubular, funnel, or bell-shaped and available in a range of colours spanning reds, yellows, pinks,
purples and even white grown in groupings to create block colours or loose drifts
Originating from the Himalayas (where the rhododendron is the national flower of Nepal) being introduced into Britain by the Romans with R. ponticum and since by plant hunters transported rhododendrons during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. There are a huge range of rhododendrons with over 1000 different species and over 27,000 named hybrids, and grow for only a inch high to 40+ foot
Originally, botanists divided the genus Rhododendron into rhododendron species and azaleas. However, in 1870 the Russian scientist Carl Maximowicz discovered that, in the strictest botanical sense, the two groups actually belong together. Since then, scientists have used only the name Rhododendron for this genus. (Some garden centres and nurseries including ours, still use the old terms and often make a distinction between rhododendrons and azaleas in their catalogues).
