Rhododendron 'Cunningham' white - Shrub

Rhododendron - 'Cunningham's White'
A bush full of flowers. We are big fans of the rhododendron 'Cunningham'. Enjoy a dark green bush most of the year. White flowers bloom for two months. It's a spectacular sight! The plant is winter-hardy and retains its colour all year round. The flowers bloom in the spring.
Cut the branches down to the stem straight after flowering. Plant rhododendrons at least 1 metre apart. The amount of sunlight doesn't matter for rhododendrons. Water the plant sparingly. Water it more during dry periods.

Plant your rhododendron bush in a container or in the garden upon receipt. Keep the root ball nice and moist – soak it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Use a pot with holes in the base and be sure to layer the bottom with potsherds or hydro-granules before adding potting compost. Use fresh potting compost and plant at the right depth. Fill up with more fresh potting compost and press the plant well in. When planting in the garden, dig a nice wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Plant your rhododendron so that the top of the root ball lies just under soil level and fill up the hole with more soil before heeling in. Water immediately. A rhoddodendron likes acidic, humus rich soil so improve garden soil with compost. Clay soil is not so good for rhododendrons so is best avoided or replaced. Part shade or full shade is best.
A Rhododendron is a strong shrub that is very undemanding. You just need to ensure that the soil around the base of the plant doesn't dry out. Carefully snip off overblown flowers without damaging the new bud just below. When shoots get too long you can safely prune them away. Older shrubs can be thinned out by removing a few thicker stems and a rhododendron can be cut hard back to rejuvenate it but of course you will then loose flowers that year.
