Rhododendron Anuschka is a stunning variety that captivates with its deep pink buds, which open to reveal ball-shaped flowers. Each bloom features a charming gradient, transitioning from rose to a soft pink center. Adding to its allure, the flowers are lightly sprinkled with red spots in the throat, creating a delicate and intricate pattern.

This compact and spreading plant boasts leathery leaves that are coated with a thick indumentum, giving it a unique texture and adding to its visual appeal. Rhododendron Anuschka is not only beautiful but also practical; thanks to its yakushimanum parentage (Sammetglut x yakushimanum Koichiro Wada), it exhibits thrip resilience, making it a hardy choice for gardens.

Flowering in October and November, Rhododendron Anuschka reaches a height of about 1.2 meters after ten years. While it is versatile, it particularly thrives in a shady part of the garden, especially in regions like Canterbury, where it benefits from some protection from direct sunlight.
