Rhododendron yakushimanumBlurettia‘ to zimozielony krzew z gatunku Rhododendron yakushimanum, który należy do rodziny wrzosowatych (Ericaceae).
Produkowane w Szkółce Krzewów Ozdobnych Zymon, różaneczniki jakuszimańskie rosną powoli i osiągają niższą wysokość niż różanecznik katawbijski. Różaneczniki pochodzi z Japonii, z wyspy Yakushima cechuje się dobrą odpornością na przesuszenie.
W przeciwieństwie do azalii, także należących do rodziny wrzosowatych, różanecznik nie traci liści na zimę w czasie ekstremalnych mrozów liście potrafią się zwijać w rurki.
Przy planowaniu uprawy różaneczników w ogrodzie ważne jest zapewnienie kilku kluczowych warunków, które pozwolą cieszyć się ich pięknem przez długi czas:

  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 dislike transplanting greatly, so it's crucial to prepare and choose the right location for these coveted plants. If you have any doubts regarding the selection or requirements of the plant, feel free to contact us, and we'll provide expert advice on plant selection.
