- 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 complement 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.

Not In My Area
You don't have to display this to the public. But since you asked.... All three plants were tenderly cared for and quickly died. My landscaper said that our winters might be zone 8, but our summers are zone 9 in Charleston, SC, and rhododendrons do not do well here. He cautioned me not to get them. He was right. They cannot take the heat and/or our frequent rain. Such a shame as I so wanted those purple flowers.

This is one of the prettiest colors in my yard. And seems quite hardy through drought and cold. Did water it the first summer but not since. I think it is about 2-3 years old now but can't remember when I bought it. Bottom line: I enjoy it and can't wait for it to grow big and bushy.

hardy and fast growing
I ordered 5 of these and they have been in the ground for a month now. A second batch of leaves already sprouted and are now thick and green. They are all growing really well. We are at 8,500' up in the Rockies of Colorado

Amazing how fast it died
Received a beautiful plant... Carefully put it into the ground per your instructions, prepared soil and added your fertilizer -- and within 2 weeks it shriveled and turned brown and then died!!! It was placed in partial shade/sun area and watered as instructed. Not happy about this... Not mad, just very sad. Live in Dallas, TX area.

Healthy Plants
I ordered and received two plants in May. One plant was severely damaged during shipping, but one call to Fast-Growing Trees and the plant was replaced immediately with no hassle. The replacement arrived the first of June and now I have two very healthy Rhododendron growing either side of my porch. I have to say I was a bit skeptical about purchasing such large plants mail order but my experience with Fast-Growing Trees has been outstanding. Now its my job to keep them growing so I can have blooms next spring. Thank you

Too Expensive
Plant looks fine, but it’s overpriced for my area. I could’ve gotten the same thing, or better for half the price, at my local stores, or a 3 gallon, for the same price.

I looked at the pictures and wondered if it fit his house. he lives on a farm and it would bring his family together due the lost of his wife. They probable been married to 70 years and took on planting flowers. This way his children can talk on where to plant the shrub. he is really lost without his wife.

I bought this Rhododendron to create a colourful boundary to our mountain property. I have noticed this plant not only does well during the snow months but also survives the altitude.

Do they stay green year around?
Janet S on Apr 13, 2015
Cutting to the stump will it grow back?
mike p on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If your plant is healthy, you can do a 'rejuvenation pruning', cutting it back to somewhere between 6 and 20 inches, depending on the branch structure. Many horticulturists recommend cutting the branches back to different heights ( some 6", some 12" and some 20") to create a multi-tiered mass of leaves. Pruning is best done in early spring, which will give the plant the whole growing season to develop new growth before winter.

A shopper on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This particular plant has been in full sun . Ordinarily I would have passed, but after it has been, literally in a field with all day sun, I am a believer. Even would purchase more of this particular plant. It's a winner.

My plants didn't bloom?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Many factors could go into this. Sometimes deer will eat the buds. Sometimes a plant can take about a year to get established to it's new environment before it fruits or blooms. Young plants often need fertilizer that has phosphorous in to help it bloom.

will this plant grow in the los angeles area?
Priscilla N on Nov 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know, Pricilla. But I would imagine so. We live over here in east central Alabama and mine is growing really well. It is only two years old and still requires protection from other flowers that want to invade it's space. However, As it gets size on it, I expect it to overshadow the other plants really well. Good luck.
Do the flowers have a fragrance?
Angela S on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They do, but you are not going to smell them by simply passing by. You have to get up close to them to smell them.

May I plant the Rhododendron in the heat, today 106, all summer hot, winter freezing? Or should I wait for fall?
Christine F on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's best to plant in the early Spring or late Fall. If temperatures are below the 90's then it's okay to go ahead and plant, but 106 could burn your Rhododendron!
