I ask help in determining the plant
« on: October 14, 2017, 03:57:31 PM »
Dear friends, I ask for help!
A few years ago I received by mail the seeds of rhododendrons, they sprouted, but from one sachet grew such plants.
Obviously the heather family - a coloring and a form of interesting - but what is it?

I think it's Enkianthus Natalia, possibly campanulatus

I agree defintely an Enkianthus. It looks very like the campanulatus I grow but could also be perulatus? They can get quite tall an spindly but do respond well to trimming to keep them bushy. As posted earlier superb autumn colour and the flower colour can vary from blush pink to deep red.
