The history of the introduction of the Rhododendron family to the western world reads somewhat like the script of an Indiana Jones movie. Devoted horticultural pioneers of the 19th century risked life and limb in the remote mountainous regions of China to seek out desirable species. The British Empire had an endless apetite for Rhododendrons which had to be satisfied!   This was no simple Chinese Takeaway. Marauding tribesmen and man-hunting dogs along with pests and diseases were a very real and dangerous threat. We can be grateful that through them we now know of aproximately 900 species of Rhododendron which have been inter-bred to create more than 10,000 hybrids. There is really no excuse for not finding a Rhododendron that apeals.

CLICK TO ENLARGE

Vireya. A tropical shrub with luxuriant green foliage that has bronze tones on the new leaves. Large full trusses of vibrant orange-red flowers appear regularly throughout the year. Plant in a sunny well drained spot with protection from frost. Evergreen.

Vireyas make excellent container plants but are equally happy in a sheltered spot in the garden. As they flower on and off all year round they like regular feeding. A slow-release fertilizer is best. They must have good drainage and as with all Rhododendrons they like a nice layer of mulch around the top of the root ball to keep the roots cool.
