English Roseum Rhododendron
Rhododendron x 'English Roseum' (H-1)
|Description||A beautiful, dense-growing evergreen shrub, prized for its large, elegant trusses of showy rosy pink-purple flowers that stand out against the lustrous dark green foliage. Thrives in cooler regions but benefits from protection from winter winds. An outstanding choice for foundation plantings or for use as an accent specimen.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||Use this romantic lavender-flowering hybrid at the back of the shrub border with others of its size. Plant as a single accent outside a special window or use to fill a barren corner of the yard. Makes a foolproof front-yard display plant to fill in side-yard gaps and disguise utilities. Makes a good evergreen hedge for privacy or to absorb sound.|
|Companion Plants||Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Holly (Ilex); Astilbe (Astilbe); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra); Coral Bells (Heuchera)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep roots cool, avoiding the crown. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures and shelter from drying winter winds. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.|
