Rhododendron Confusing Me
I bought a generic rhododendron hybrid from B&Q back in March and planted it on my front garden, totally oblivious of its need for acidic soil by the way.
Anyway, in May it flowered a load of pretty white flowers which lasted for about two weeks which then died away. The plant then proceeded to go on a growth spurt and roughly double in size in two months, but this is the weird bit... its now sprouting pink flowers.
Does anyone know why 1. it is seemingly flourishing in what as far as I know is not acidic soil? 2. Is it normal to flower twice? 3. Why the flowers are now pink when the first lot were white?
The whole gardening thing makes my head spin!
