Autumn Monarch™ Rhododendron has an upright flower with bright shiny leaves. It is a heat tolerant Azalea with semi-double, ruffled, dark coral blooms that get 75mm in diameter. It flowers from autumn through to winter and spring.
Water well for the first year for the plant to fully establish and become more drought tolerant. Top up water in dry periods. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended) with the root ball slightly above soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. For best results prune after spring flowering. A better garden starts with a better plant. Information and picture are a guide only.
