Keeping Rhododendron Colour

I love the huge pink flowers of this Cornish Pink Rhododendron in April, followed by a pink carpet of fallen petals in May. Yet, by August the dry shade can make it a bit gloomy and dusty. So to bring back the colour and vigour of spring I have experimented by hanging Begonias from the branches. Visitors have wondered how I have created a repeat flowering Rhododendron, but it is just the theatre of gardening.
