Pink flowering rhododendrons
Our best picks of pink flowering rhododendrons, including both soft pastel colours and more vibrant, vivid shades. Rhododendrons in this section range from dwarf varieties to larger specimens, which can be filtered using the "By height" product filter feature below. Light and bright pinks combine well with blues, greens, yellows and golds whilst deeper pinks tend to go well with deep purples, blacks and dark browns (particularly good with dusty pinks). Pink and orange are also great analogous colours to create a warm, earthy vibe when placed side by side. Pink rhododendrons are part of the wider group of acid-loving, spring-flowering bushes which have been mainstays of woodland-style planting schemes for decades. They're grown for their abundant clusters of spectacular, showy flowers, produced above an impressive structure of spirally arranged, typically evergreen, large leathery leaves. Generally larger than Azaleas, they prefer a sheltered, shaded spot in a moist, acidic soil in dappled shade, protected from cold, drying winds. Smaller and dwarf rhododendrons are well-suited to growing in containers, whilst larger specimens are ideal for informal, woodland-style or naturalistic schemes.
