Rhododendron macabeanum

Rhododendron macabeanum is one of the larged-leaved species in the Falconera sub-section, coming from India. Like the others, it can grow to be a big tree, although that is more likely to be of interest to your grandchildren than to you. In the garden you are more likely to see the flowers at eye level. They come in huge trusses, and are creamy coloured, with a purple blotch inside. The undersides of the leaves - which are up to 30 cm long - are covered in lovely woolly, deep fawn indumentum.

Large leaves with woolly pale fawn indumentum; huge trusses of creamy flowers.
