About Ron

Ron is somewhat of a classic, who comes into his own in late Spring, showing off the most superb display of white flowers. A real charmer.

Details

Ron is an evergreen shrub who grows clumps of trumpet-like white flowers during Spring. He grows between 5 and 10cm per year and, as an acid-lover, is best planted with Ericaceous soil.

Plant height: 70-90cm. Pot size: 10L

Likes

Happy in most sites except those that receive no light at all. Needs acidic soil to thrive.

Dislikes

No fan of wind so make sure you've got a bigger plant protecting him if you're a few floors up.

Looking after this plant

Doesn't require pruning but cut back gently after flowering if you need to make space. Deadhead (picking off spent flowers) during flowering period to encourage new growth. If he's to be planted in one of our 30cm pots, he'll need one of these 40L bags of ericaceous compost.

Living with pets and children

Toxic if consumed.
