Rhododendron 'Cherry Cheesecake'

 

Much like all the plants we have to offer, we like to let our plants do the talking. The Cherry Cheesecake Rhododendron is no exception. Rhododendrons are evergreen shrubs that do best in shaded, well drained locations. Its temperament is relatively robust, faring well in zones 6 through 9 and due to its dwarfish nature of reaching about five feet all around, its stems and leaves are much more hardy and full than its predecessor, ‘Hachmann’s Charmant.’ What is absolutely the highlight of this shrub is its blooms during the flowering season of late spring. During this time, this modest evergreen shrub transforms to showcase a plethora of jubilation and excitement. Their lucious azalea-like white flowers are laced with lovely reddish-pink along its edges and are imprinted with a blotch of deep bright red. Their bloom time and duration do vary based on climate so do keep that in mind when deciding placement for your “soon to be-autiful” landscape.

 

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.

 

Cherry Cheesecake will begin shipping on February 10, 2022.
