Rhododendron ‘Snipe’ are evergreen variety noted for their compact and round growing habit. These shrubs form perfect round bushes that can be planted in a large rockery or as borders. They produce small green leaves that become an excellent backdrop for beautiful lilac-pink flowers. Rhododendron plants are small sized shrubs, suitable for small gardens.
They bloom stunning funnel-shaped lilac flowers abundantly in late spring and offer a striking colourful display until mid-summer. These large flowers hold great floral value, even the bees and butterflies appreciate it. Their small elliptic leaves will bring year-round interest to your garden.
Rhododendron Snipe plants usually prefer colder regions, thriving in partial sunlight or dappled shade. Avoid planting them in sunny spots, usually indirect sunlight filtered through other taller trees is enough. They flourish in acidic soils that are well-drained.
Regularly watering the young plants is important. Add a layer of ericaceous compost or any organic mulch around the base for moisture retention. Snipe plants are trusted for their neat and tidy mounding habit. They demand little pruning and deadheading of old faded blooms.
These gorgeous flowering shrubs fit large containers and look very appealing as borders. Use them as low-hedging along with larger shrubs or bring these dazzling blooms right to your patio.
