Rhododendron 'Roseum Elegans' is an evergreen shrub of the species Rhododendron catawbiense, which belongs to the heather family (Ericaceae).
Produced at the Zymon Ornamental Shrubs Nursery, rhododendrons are hybrids of the catawbiense variety with other varieties of this species. The Catawba Rhododendron originates from North America, where it naturally grows in the understory of forests. It is characterized by good frost resistance.
In contrast to azaleas, also belonging to the heather family (Ericaceae), rhododendrons do not lose their leaves in winter. Instead, during extreme frosts, the leaves can curl into tubes.
When planning to cultivate rhododendrons in your garden, it is important to ensure several key conditions for the plant to enjoy their beauty for a long time:

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

Rhododendrons tolerate transplanting very poorly, so it is essential to properly prepare and choose a location for the plant. If you have any doubts regarding the choice of plant or its requirements, we invite you to contact us, and we will provide professional advice to assist you in selecting the plants.
