Rhododendron 'Honey Butter'

 

Looking like a mix of fruity flavors like orange sherbet ice cream, the Honey Butter Rhododendron is perfect for chest level hedging in zones 7-9. There are a number of landscaping applications that can be used to showcase this shrub’s intricate and breathtaking display of color such as low hedges, specimen planting, or accents which take flight during its blooming season. Blooming in late spring, it takes a dome shaped architecture presenting itself at a proud ~4 ft around in your garden. Its huge blooms bouquet with large bell-shaped blossoms singing with a honey-butter color hence its name. Akin to most rhododendrons, this shrub carries large, leathery dark green evergreen leaves. For best results plant in partial shade to full shade to prevent chlorosis and protect its leaves from burning up in the sun.

 

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.
