Rhododendron x 'Trilby' (H-2)
|A small and showy evergreen shrub highly valued for its large trusses of vibrant red flowers that contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage on distinctive red stems. Thrives in cooler regions. Very effective as an accent plant or a background plant in perennial beds, or in mass plantings and hedges.
|Keep soil moist, but not soggy.
|Moderate growing; reaches 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide.
|Border, Container, Hedge
|Although this Rhododendron looks beautiful anywhere in the landscape, its small size and showy coloring make it perfect for the middle 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 cover ground beneath and behind a smaller accent tree. Makes a good hedge when left to grow into its natural shape.
|Holly (Ilex); Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa); Astilbe (Astilbe); Alpine Clematis (Clematis alpina)
|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.
|Rhododendron was named and classified by Linnaeus who named it from the Greek for rose tree.
