Rhododendron 'Loderi King George'

Loderi King George' Rhododendron, Midseason Rhododendron


Prized for its powerful fragrance and pretty blooms, 'Loderi King George' is a large evergreen shrub of incredible beauty. Opening from bright pink flower buds, its huge, strongly scented, lily-like, pure white flowers, up to 3.5 in. wide (8 cm), are softly pink flushed on the outside and exhibit faint green markings in their throat. Blooming profusely in mid to late spring, they are held in loose trusses of about 10 to 12 blooms which provide a really stunning display. They contrast beautifully with the evergreen foliage of large, long, pale green, smooth leaves, and the burgundy colored stems. Regarded as one of the finest hybrids ever raised, this midseason Rhododendron is hardy to 0°F (-18°C). 

  • Grows up to 4-8 ft. tall (120-240 cm) and 6-8 ft. wide (180-240 cm). 
  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society

  • Perfect for shrub borders or mixed borders and shade gardens
  • Attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and birds
  • Removing spent flowers promotes new growth.
  • All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested
