North Wales Diary June 2014

"The star of the show among the alpines this month has definitely been Rhododendron lowndesii, a diminuitve stoloniferous Himalayan rhododendron that has gradually spread to dinner plate size in a partially shaded crevice bed where the soil is not particularly rich in organic matter..... "

By jove, you can say that again - a STAR indeed. Most of us would consider ourselves fortunate to have a couple of flowers on a scruffy plant of this most charming of the tiny rhododendrons. You are blessed to have such a plant !

While I am a little doubtful that the Abelia would thrive up here - if you were to strike some cuttings - I would be very grateful to try one....... (she said, in shameless begging mode!)
