Rhododendron Roseum Pink
An upright, rounded, evergreen shrub with glossy, dark green foliage with a sensational mid-spring display of large, rounded trusses of clear pink flowers. Tolerates shade and thrives in cooler regions but benefits from protection from winter winds. Withstands heat and humidity. An excellent informal hedge or foundation plant.
Provide well-drained, acidic soil, rich in organic matter. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep roots cool, avoiding the crown. Protect from harsh afternoon sun. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.
