Rhododendron, All Saints' Church
Rhododendron, All Saints' Church
About 200 varieties of rhododendron are grown in gardens and parks in the British Isles. They were introduced from Europe in the mid 17th century and later from western China, Tibet, north-west India and Burma. Only one species grows wild, 'Rhododendron ponticum', a native of the Caucasus.

The tall, evergreen shrub with its oblong, glossy leaves, 408 inches long, often grows to 20 feet and makes a magnificent display in May and June when its purple, funnel-shaped flowers of about 2 inches in diameter are fully open. Like nearly all rhododendrons, it grows vigorously on sandy and peaty soils.
