Product Description

Huge Lavender Blooms Delight Each Spring

Why Lavender Rhododendrons?

Rhododendrons are famous for their huge clusters of vibrant lavender flowers (8 to 10 flowers each), but most people don't know how easy they are to grow. In fact, the Lavender is drought tolerant, highly adaptable and versatile...meaning it grows almost anywhere, despite its elegant, lush appearance.

In fact, 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.

Its round growth habit makes it ideal to plant in groupings with the promise of stunning color in the spring months. When it comes to the Lavender Rhododendron, there's nothing you can't do.

Why is Better

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

You won’t find a healthier Rhododendron because we’ve planted, grown and shipped it with meticulous care. Now, you get a hassle-free shrub that’s ready to thrive in your landscape and burst with color and growth quickly.

Order now for an exceptional Rhododendron that will fill out quickly and give you the burst of spring color you desire. Get your Lavender Rhododendron Shrub today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Lavender Rhododendron in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily). For a hedge, plant your Lavender Rhododendrons about three feet apart.

Dig a hole about twice the size of your shrub's root ball, place your shrub, backfill the soil and mulch the surrounding soil. Finally, water the area to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Give your Lavender Rhododendron a deep watering once your soil feels dry to the touch, down about two inches.

3. Fertilizing: You'll know that spring has arrived when beautiful purple flowers emerge on your Lavender Rhododendron. After your flowers have bloomed, fertilize your Lavender Rhododendron with an acidic fertilizer for an acid-loving shrub.

Shipping Details

Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Beautiful healthy bush

The item arrived on time, was very healthy upon arrival, and even had some blooms forming! It had to sit out on my back porch a few days but it did just fine. I just had to water it a few times. I finally got it in the ground and there are no signs of stress. It’s very healthy. Plus I was very happy with the size (3 gallon pot). I will likely order a few more in the spring.

Great experience so far.

Website was thorough in description of plant with planting instructions. I purchased 5 shrubs and all were intact during shipping. We planted them per instructions with the rooting agent. It's been 2 weeks since they've been planted and so far they appear to be doing well. We're hoping they'll be well rooted before any bad winters come. If they survive til next spring, I'll definitely be purchasing again from FGT. Lavender Rhododendron Shrub Lavender Rhododendron Shrub Review

transit of lavender rhododendron

problem with shipping, took extra days to get here. plant was in a long box that was opened in transit as staples were pulled through box and then taped over and there was no filler to keep plant from sliding from end to end in box of about 3 ft.. several leafs broke off, however plant recovered right away and is growing fine in the garden. this is for your information.....steve ganguet


We're so sorry to hear how your plant arrived but glad it seems to be doing well! Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns!
