Landscape Moment: Rhododendron bush

A Rhododendron bush is a flowering bush with bright spring blooms. It is a very popular bush and foundation plant. It is considered a bush but may grow as tall as 80 feet tall 

The Rhododendron may be started from seed, however most home gardeners grow the bush from a established plants in full bloom from a garden store. The Rhododendron bush is transfers from pot in early spring or early fall. 

Rhododendrons grow best in light shade. The soil should be  moist and well drained. To much wind or too much sun will damage and even kill the plant. Rhododendrons should be planted out of direct sunlight with protection from the wind. The cold weather can also damage the Rhododendrons.
