Cosmopolitan is a bushy compact rounded bush producing deep cerise pink flowers in May and June. Rhododendron are an easily maintained plant that require no pruning. Rhododendron are lime hating plants, lime soil stunts growth and prevents flowering. To ensure a good growing and flowering plant only plant in acid soil or ericaceous compost in full sun or light partial shade.
