Rhododendron ‘Arctic Tern’


This rhododendron has a different look to others we sell at Muddy Trowel – clusters of delicate snow white flowers at the end of leafy stems burst into life in early summer.

This plant is known for being extremely hardy. As climate change causes extreme temperature fluctuations, rest assured that this plant can survive temperatures as low as -15 celsius. It’s also a pollinating plant so once it begins to flower, it’ll provide food for pollinators, such as bees and butterflies.

Please note this plant is not currently in flower and it may not look its best when it gets to you. But it is a healthy plant and will flower beautifully again next spring.
