Rhododendron catawbiense 'Boursault'

 

Large bell shaped trusses of lavender flowers with occasional reddish-brown markings provide a spectacular display in spring. Dense, upright habit with a uniform, spreading branching structure with broad, evergreen leaves. Beautiful as an accent plant, or massed in a border or informal hedge in a shade garden or as woodland undercover.

 

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting Rhododendron as they prefer less watering than you might think. In clay soil we prefer planting with pine bark soil conditioner for Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel,  Azalea.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Rhododendron as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
