Enkianthus campanulatus is a large deciduous shrub with small leaves that will thrill you in spring with its clusters of red-tipped blooms and again in autumn with a spectacular display of bright red, orange and yellow.
Suitable for acid to neutral soils and a great companion to rhododendrons and azaleas, 'Red Bells' is a particularly choice variety with clusters of cream, bell-shaped flowers tipped with red from late spring to mid-summer. A sumptuous display, the blooms hang like tiny, red-blushed grapes and contrast beautifully with the glossy leaves.
Easy to grow, Enkianthus prefers partial shade, but will grow in full sun as long as you remember to keep it well watered. Perfect in large pots, Enkianthus is happiest in ericaceous compost.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come. It's also recommended by the RHS as a Plant for pollinators so will attract wildlife into your garden making it a haven for butterflies and bees.
Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, Enkianthus will grow to around 4m high and wide.
