Anna Rose Whitney Rhododendron
Great as a Stand-alone Accent or in a Hedge
'Anna Rose Whitney' grows to 5 to 7 feet high and wide and prefers cooler regions, but protection from winter wind is recommended. This eye-catching, deer-resistant Rhodie performs best in acidic soils and is quite at home under the canopies of conifers and around woodland home sites. Needing an area of partial shade, it is great for blending into pre-existing wooden environments.
Provide well-drained, organically rich soil, and follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to allow it to establish a deep root system. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep the roots cool, and feed it with an acidic fertilizer after blooming. Prune in spring after flowering. Zones 4-7.
