Rhododendron ‘Gibraltar’ is a stunning and eye-catching shrub that will instantly add a pop of fiery color to any garden. Its trusses of large, bright orange-red flowers with slightly curled petals bloom in mid to late spring, creating an impressive and showy display that is hard to miss. The dark green, glossy leaves provide a beautiful contrast to the vibrant blooms and remain evergreen throughout the year, adding interest and texture to the landscape even when not in bloom. This hybrid shrub has a dense, rounded habit that can grow up to 1.5 meters in height and spread, making it an excellent choice for creating a focal point or adding structure to a border. Its robust and easy-to-grow nature makes it suitable for a variety of garden situations, and it is particularly well-suited to acidic soils with a pH of 4.5 to 6.
