Regular price $15.00 Sale

R. Anthodendron x Kurume 'Hino-Crimson'

Hino-Crimson is best grown in sun-dappled or high-open shade. Too much sun in the heat of summer will burn its leaves.

Plant in acidic, humusy, moisture-retentive but well-drained soil. Keep roots just moist. It responds to these good conditions with Spring-time masses of bright pinkish-red blooms.

Use as a shady shrub border, in a mixed border, or in a woodland garden. Semi-evergreen means, here, that leaves will bronze in winter.
