Plant Care & Advice

This shrub prefers climates with adequate rainfall and moist summers. The best time to plant this shrub would be in early Spring. Mulch plants every spring. After flowering, deadhead where practical, to promote vegetative growth rather than seed production. Remove dead flowers from rhododendrons carefully; next year’s buds are just under the old heads!
