Rhododendrons are famous for their huge clusters of vibrant lavender flowers (clusters of 8-10 flowers each), but most people don't know how easy they are to grow –

• Drought tolerant – no watering worries during summer dry spells.
• Adaptable to a variety of soil conditions and climates,
• Excellent in gardens, by walkways, foundation plantings, or along your property border.

You are sure to find a place for this plant. The National Arbor Day Foundation calls it “One of America’s most beautiful plants.”

Your new Rhododendrons will compliment any landscape design with its explosion of purple flowers against a backdrop of glossy, leather-like foliage.

Consider using this versatile shrub as a hedgerow plant... its round growth habit makes it ideal to plant in groupings with the promise of stunning color in the spring months.

A customer favorite, we suggest you add them to your collection quickly… because these shrubs will sell out.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Lavender Rhododendron


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lavender Rhododendron.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Lavender Rhododendron gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Lavender Rhododendron again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
