Vireya Rhododendrons

I often pick up ‘hospital plants’ on visits to the nurseries.  They are always marked down to a fraction of their original price as they are usually unhappy in some way and on their way out.  I like to rescue them and nursing them back to health.


This vireya seems to be enjoying the Sydney summer weather that is persisting at present.  It is also known as Tropical Rhododendron.

  1. Jackie’s a good plant doctor, too. She often resuscitates untended dried up ones from supermarkets

    That’s such a beautiful flower and a great find in the bargain bin. I tried to grow one but the winter was far too cold.
