Ramapo Rhododendron

Rhododendron x 'Ramapo' (H-1)

SKU
01005
This beautiful dwarf rhododendron has large trusses of lovely purple spring flowers that provide a beautiful contrast to the green foliage. A very compact evergreen shrub that is perfect for small gardens in cool, damp climates. A terrific choice when a small accent plant with great presence is needed. Equally well-suited for a low hedge.

Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.
