Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Fantastic White blooms almost cover this hardy Evergreen Azalea completely in late spring and early summer giving it a great impact in your planting scheme wherever it is placed. Rhododendron 'Palestrina' holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit due to its ease of growth and reliability as well as being suitable for growing in a variety of conditions. Dark green, glossy leaves remain on the plant throughout the year to provide good cover and - when this shrub is placed at the back of a bed or border - a good backdrop for other blooms. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 150cm (59").

Water Rhododendron plants regularly throughout the growing season. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Feed Rhododendrons in spring with a slow release fertiliser for acid-loving plants. Protect plants from cold winter winds. Border grown Rhododendrons will appreciate an autumn mulch to protect their shallow roots from winter cold. Take care not to mound the mulch too close to the stem as this may cause it to rot. If necessary, lightly prune Rhododendron plants in June to remove damaged shoots and restrict size.

Grow Rhododendrons in moist, well drained, acid soil that has been enriched with plenty of well rotted organic matter. Choose a position in semi or dappled shade with shelter from cold drying winds. Many dwarf Rhododendrons can cope with a sunny position provided that the soil remains reliably moist.

Where soil conditions are alkaline, Rhododendron plants are best grown in patio containers, using a mix of ericaceous compost and a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Rhododendrons are surface rooting so it is important to avoid planting them too deeply.
