Huge Lavender Blooms Delight Each and Every Spring- Easy to grow!

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.

Our Lavender Rhododendrons are shipped in large 1 and 3 gallon containers, ensuring you receive an established and mature sized plant. Many of our competitors only offer smaller sizes, which will take years to reach an appealing height.

Order now for an exceptional Rhododendron that will quickly fill out and give you the burst of spring color you desire.

LOVE!!
I got the Lavender and Red Rhododendron to plant in my backyard next to a patio/pergola we are building. The plants were carefully shipped and arrived in great condition.
I've re-potted into new pots until I figure out where it's going...but it is doing great!
It's a very healthy plant. It's been re-potted for almost 2 weeks and the leaves are dense and thick. There's even little tiny buds coming out now - so I am thrilled! I've never had one of these before, so I can't wait to see the flowers!

I purchased this Rhododendron this spring. I had to put a screen around the plant to keep the rabbits from having a feast. I would rather not keep this screen here forever, it looks kind of tacky. Maybe when it grows taller they might leave it alone. Something to consider

Not so happy in Texas
I bought 2 Lavend3r Rhododendron (1 gal) and carefully followed planting instructions.. They seemed to survive our 2015 rain but the heat (HOT) months are on us now. One seems to be doing okay (at least the leaves are still standing out and look green) but the other one looks like it is dying. the leaves have brown spots on them (as does the stalk), they turn down and dye. I think this one will not make it and don't know what is wrong -- fungus, bugs, what?
I am hoping that at least one of them will survive this year and bring forth some flowers next spring.
I've had pretty good luck with Fast Growing Trees.com in the past -- but like anything planting, you win some and you lose some.

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.

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.
Do they stay green year around?

Does this rhodo grow in full sun? Afternoon sun seems to be a problem for some
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.

Can I grow this plant in a planter? What is a good size to start with?
Korkie on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This plant does prefer to be in the ground. I would not suggest planting it in a pot, but if you want to do so I would do at least a 30 gallon pot.
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.

Cathey S on Jul 6, 2014

does the lavender rhodo have a fragrance?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014

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!
