Standards can either be planted as a focal point in tubs, on a patio, near a front door, or just as effectively as a feature planting in your garden. Either way they are a landscaper’s delight and something rather unique for your garden. Striking as young plants, these designer trees are even more impressive as they mature. They are a fantastic investment.

We have a great selection of our exclusive Standard Rhododendrons priced from $160.00. These special plants are very labour intensive and involve many hours of work to create. It takes a minimum of five years from the time the grafting stock is propagated until the smallest grade of standards are ready for sale, approximately 120cm height. Once these are planted they really will become a special feature in your garden.
