Rhododendron - Rocket

The Rhododendron Rocket, Rhododendron 'Rocket'. Is an evergreen shrub with a bronze tinge with new growth that matures to a glossy, heavily veined dark green. The bright bell-shaped, very frilly flowers are 2Ā½" across and bloom in midseason, May and June. The flowers are long lasting and showy. It grows best in light shade, and needs protection from midday sun and winter sun. 'Rocket' needs regular weekly watering, or more often in extreme heat. Rhododendron 'Rocket' prefers to live in damp moist conditions and so it is best to apply a mulch at the base of the shrub at regular intervals. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and other insects. Use as a hedge, accent or as a border.
