Botanical Pronunciationroh-doh-DEN-dron
LoreThe name rhododendron is taken from the Greek for rose tree.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing to 5 to 7 ft. tall and wide.
Bloom TimeLate Spring
Design IdeasThis is the best Rhodie for new homesites, where early flowering is a big plus. Few hybrids can compare with the speed of this one, with its masses of pink flowers. Use as background or filler along fence lines or bare walls. Great between windows as foundation planting, which allows its fragrance to easily waft in. Good for side-yard screens and privacy hedges. Combine with other shrubs that blossom in more striking hues and use to give evergreen color to plantings of deciduous flowering shrubs. Dense growth is ideal for cover-ups, such as along fences and the edges of outdoor steps. Works well under the drip lines of large conifers.
