Rhododendron New Century
Creamy flowers with ruffled edges, accented by red anthers.
Flowers in mid- to late May. If possible, plant them facing east or north to get the best light conditions.
Rhododendrons prefer rich, acidic soil with good drainage. Since they are shallow rooted, they require even moisture -- too little water and they could dry out, too much water and they could drown. They appreciate soil that has been amended with peat moss, peat humus, or compost. The one-step way to be sure your soil is rich and acidic enough for your Rhododendron is to add Espoma Holly Tone.Mulching can also help maintain root moisture as well as controlling weeds and cooling the soil. Zones 5 to 8.
