Rhododendron x 'Scintillation' (H-2)
|Description||Dense-growing, broad evergreen shrub valued for its large trusses of showy, lightly scented flowers. Prefers cooler regions but some protection from winter wind is helpful. Very effective as an accent, and an excellent choice for borders, mass planting, or container.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing to 5 ft. tall and wide.|
|Flower Attributes||Fragrant, Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||Although this Rhododendron looks beautiful anywhere in the landscape, its size and showy coloring make it perfect for the middle to back of the border. Ideal with other acid-loving shrubs along foundations of the house or the base of a fence. Great background for virtually all perennials. Also works well to fill space beneath a large shade tree. A good backgrounder behind a smaller accent tree.|
|Companion Plants||Plant with other elegant flowering shrubs for partial shade such as Penny Mac Hydrangea, (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Penny Mac'), Bette Sette Ice Angels Camellia, (Camellia japonica 'Bette Sette'), Cannon's Double Azalea, (Azalea x 'Cannon's Double'), and perennial Sunshine Selections Lenten Rose, (Helleborus x hybrida 'Sunshine Selections').|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
|Lore||Rhododendron was named and classified by Linnaeus who named it from the Greek for rose tree.|
