Rhododendrons make up an incredibly diverse group of plants, originating from many parts of the Northern hemisphere with a large concentration in China and the Himalayas. These plants vary from tiny ground covering plants to species growing as understory plants in forests. Most flower in early spring, although some bear flowers for a brief period in autumn.
Rhododendron ‘Marcel Menard’ is a tough variety, with dark green foliage and dark purple flowers that show a greenish speckling. Grow in moist but well-drained, acidic soil in full sun. Plants need minimal pruning.

rhododendrons are one of my favourite plants.
I inherited one when I bought my house... it has always looked sickly and doesn't flower every year. I feed it ericasious food and have washed the leaves with soapy water when they got sooty mould... how can I get it to perk up?? does it need pruning???
Is it ok to prune your rhododendron in July
