There were three Rhododendrons planted in a group in the center of the north side of the front yard when we moved here. They have obviosuly grown significantly over the 20 years we have lived here. We pretty much left them alone for many years. About 2006, we cleaned out all the dead branches and limbs at the bottom of the trunks, and cleaned out under them. They have thrived since then. Two are bright pink, and one is more lavender colored. They are evergreen. Other than that I have no idea how to classify them at all.
SneIrish's Rhododendron Care Instructions
Rhododendron normally tends to reach to a mature height of 37.00 metres [imperial: 120.25 feet] so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.
Your garden has partial sun light which is ideal for Rhododendron.
Remember to water moderately.
Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (6b) is within the ideal range for Rhododendron. The recommended range is between Zone 4 and 8.
Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 5.0 and 6.5 as Rhododendron likes to be in acidic soil.
