Rhododendron 'Alfred' is a shrub of the species Rhododendron catawbiense, which belongs to the heather family (Ericaceae). Produced in the Zymon Ornamental Shrubs Nursery, Catawba Rhododendrons are hybrids of the previously mentioned species. Botanically, the Catawba Rhododendron originates from North America, and it is a species that tolerates frost quite well.
In contrast to azaleas, also belonging to the heather family, rhododendrons do not lose their leaves in winter. Instead, when high frosts occur, the leaves curl into tubes.
When deciding to cultivate rhododendrons in your garden, it is important to remember several basic conditions, the fulfillment of which will allow you to enjoy their beauty for years:

  • the rhododendron requires a semi-shaded and sheltered position, protected from the wind.
  • the soil prepared for the rhododendron should be acidic, rich in organic matter, well-draining, and moderately moist.
  • rhododendrons thrive best along the edges of small ponds, water features, or other bodies of water, where there is a moist microclimate.
  • rhododendrons definitely thrive better when planted in groups.

Rhododendrons dislike being transplanted, so it is important to properly prepare and choose a location for your desired plant. If you have any doubts regarding the selection or requirements of the plant, we invite you to contact us, and we will provide professional advice in choosing the plants.
